"R -- Not an answer to your question, just a comment. I was on Victoza for a short time, only one of the side effects is pancreatitis -- I got it. All I can say is that I'm very cautious these days about starting any kind of med that is too new.…"

"My Victoza also seems to have stopped working. Now Victoza seems to do nothing at all so I’ll stop it. I had the same experience with Byetta. This is interesting about switching between the two every six months."

"Thank you so much...never heard about Victoza losing its potency. I was on Byetta some time back, but it caused me too many gastric issues. I had to get off it. It also stopped working. I have a call into my doctor. So it may be that there is…"

"I was reading the other comments below and it sounds like your Victoza has lost its potency! You should talk to your doctor about changing medications or rotating them (i.e with Byetta) like bsc below says. You should get it done asap, if you are…"

In the last few months however, it seemed to stop being effective and my A1c climbed back up and I quit losing weight.Has anyone else had this experience? Has anyone learned why it might have stopped working?Thanks! RSee More
