Diagnosed-in-2001 replied to momof3gs's discussion 'Rotating between Victoza and Byetta' in the group VICTOZA
"I'm not doing that (switching to Byetta) and am still on Victoza. But I'm curious: what do you mean that it seems "Victoza isn't working anymore"?"

Diagnosed-in-2001 commented on twiddlemthumbs's group 'VICTOZA'
"Ladym: Before shifting to Victoza, I was taking Actoplus Met (a combination of Actos & Metformin). When I began taking Victoza, my endocrinologist took me off Actos and bumped up my dosage of Metformin. As I explained earlier, my blood sugar…"

Diagnosed-in-2001 replied to Ladym's discussion 'Victoza sugar numbers' in the group VICTOZA
"Hi Ladym: Earlier on this site I explained my experience with Victoza. Here's a quick summary: (1) Going to 1.8mg was too much in terms of stomach & other issues (excessive & nasty-smelling burping, lots of gas, tiredness/fatigue) - I…"

Diagnosed-in-2001 replied to Alda's discussion 'new victoza user' in the group VICTOZA
"Good luck! I started using Victoza at the end of last August. My bs control is fine (as it was before - I shifted from Actos to Victoza in an attempt to lose weight), and my appetite decreased significantly; I ended up losing around 40 pounds…"

"Sorry, but I don't know anything about taking Zofran (or any other anti-nausea medication) along with Victoza. Good luck."

Diagnosed-in-2001 replied to momof3gs's discussion 'Vomiting' in the group VICTOZA
"When I began (late last August), I felt some stomach discomfort (on the border of nausea, but less than that) after a day or two. Then things felt ok. I went through the same when I bumped it up to 1.2mg in the second week. But I couldn't…"

Gb replied to Diagnosed-in-2001's discussion 'Managing Stomach Issues with Victoza' in the group VICTOZA
"I found that I had to eat "just enough" to take the hunger away. I have also found, after a year being on it, that I can live quite well on the decreased food intake. I thought I needed to eat more, but apparently not. Anyway, the nausea…"

Pauly replied to Diagnosed-in-2001's discussion 'Managing Stomach Issues with Victoza' in the group VICTOZA
"I find taking a glucose tablet helps end my nauseous feeling, Sometimes I even take a half a glucose tablet. Its a matter of experimenting. I find if I go into the 60's then I know I need the tablet. I have split the does of Victoza too, One in…"
