Any side effects from victoza have long passed feeling sick tummy rumbling headaches what concerns me more is my doctor prescibed an anti depression drug called citalopram due to a really bad episode 4 weeks ago the thoughts I had were not nice in fact looking back they quite scare me is my depression in any way due to victoza I have no idea along with victoza insulin citalopram beta blockers, I take 10 other drugs each day for heart failure prostrate and leg cramps so to be honest it could be any one of those drugs or a combination of any of these drugs.

Being house bound for the majority of the week and not seeing anyone for 8 to 10 hours a day also plays on your mind so it may not be any of the medication I take who knows one thing is for certain before the victoza my body had become insulin in tolerent and it clearly was not working victoza has helped my reduce the insulin from 160 units a day to just over 120 as for any side effects from victoza who can say it has been over 10 months since I started on it my blood sugars have reduced over that time and are more managable just.

What i really need is supervision daily to keep me on track relying on myself is not enough you need some will power to keep on track and I do not have much of that still I am still here to write about it so that is a blessing in it's self.

I started Victoza 7-21-10 and aside from the mild nausa I love it. I have lost 9 lbs and since I have been able to start back walking my numbers are great. I also do NO CARB/very low carb. There is not a lot of good TV to cover 8 to 10 hours. Diabetes is all about will power.
In 2000 I spent 5 months in the Manchester area and had a great time.
