 4  lower bgl and lose weight I had Some nausea, vomiting and upset stomach for about 3-4 days when first starting and each new level of dose. I lost 24 pounds in the first month and my fasting numbers were between 94-115 on the 1st week. When I went up to the 1.2 fasting was 88-98 and I pretty much stay in those numbers all day. I tried moving up to 1.8 but the side effects mentioned above were just too much to handle with no real change in numbers that were already fantastic! I'm back at the 1.2, I'm still losing about 1-2 lbs a week and am very pleased. I do however have the unpleasant injection site rash every now and then, but it is much less frequently using the 8mm needles instead of the 6mm. F 38 2 months

 2  Type 2 Diabetes Intestinal cramps, lower back pain, major changes in toileting routine I took this med for about 45 days. Doc wanted me to take for weight loss and glucose control. Never did make it to the 1.8 dosage. The intestinal cramps would wake me up at night, not to mention the changes in my toileting routine were hard to tolerate. Lower back pain was excruciating. Have been off the med now for two to three weeks and side effects have stopped. M 47 45 days

 3  To manage my BS w/o so many needles Nausea, then uncontrollable vomiting. Lost 10 pounds in 3 days. Was never overweight. At almost 5'9" I weighed 160 lbs before Victoza. Loss of appetite. The little I did eat came back up in full force. Initially when I was first diagnosed with diabetes type 2 I was taking Glipizide. In 2010 I was put on insulin, both Levemir and Humalog. There was no problem except I got tired of sticking myself with needles and wanted to return to oral medication. That when I was prescribed Victoza and 750 mg of Metformin. I have to take 0.6 for a week, 1.2 the 2nd week and 1.8 the 3rd week and thereafter. I vomited a lot (and I mean a lot) but concluded that maybe it was because of the levothyroxine and avorstatin medication. When I stopped taking it, the vomiting stopped and I felt better. With all the negative hype about the side effects, I worry and don't really know if I will continue taking Victoza and Metformin. The best thing is that I only have to stick myself 2x daily no I had been taking Levothyroxine for underactive thyroid and Avorstatin for my cholesterol a long time and don't think Victoza should be taken with these medications F 73 3 days

 5  type 2 stomach issues , nausea and really sick stomach in the beginning. I have lost 37 pounds in 3 months, the side effects are almost gone and my body is adjusting well to this in combination with1000 mg Metformin daily also. I am taking 1.2 of the Victoza and my BS is great and my A1C has gone from 9.6 to 7.2 and I am thrilled. I just turned 60 and I feel like this is giving me a second chance. I knew that I was on the brinko of disaster and I am so thankful for this medicine. I know it is not going to be for everyone, but don't give up so quickly. It has changed my life and I can't wait to loose another 20 lbs and stay healthy. Thank you researchers and doctors for this medicine. On the flip side I did not think I was going to be able to do this but as I said the sick stomach and fatique has subsided. Stick it out and let this work for you too. F 60 2 months

Did not lose any weight. Before starting Victoza my glucose level was a little high but I don't have diabetes. Now that I stopped (2weeks) my glucose levels are staying way too high.

History
 5  Lower blood sugar When you first start there is some nausea. I did vomit a few times, but I guess that probably depends on your tolerance for nausea. That is the only bad effects I have. This drug has been wonderful. I started taking it because even on Metformin my A1c was 9.2, fastings in the high 200s. It was horrible, bad foot neuropathy etc. There is some nausea when you first start taking this and I had it fairly bad for the first month probably, but there are things I learned to decrease it. Smaller meals and I take the shot later in the day like a few hours after lunch. The worst nausea occurred when I took it right after a meal...Don't do that!!! It slows stomach emptying and if you take it right after your meal just sits there and causes issues. I am over 350 pounds and in 3 months I've lost 35 pounds effortlessly. My A1c went from 9.2 to 6.5 in the first three months. I have been huge my whole life. I have always felt like I was missing something that tells me when to stop eating....Victoza does that for me. Now I will have a meal and eating along as normal and something will just tell me its enough and I stop with no problem. I very rarely finish my plate now. I have a stop button now and I stay full longer. I no longer eat anything after dinner...no interest in it at all. I also do not crave carbs like I use to. Yes the side effects can be bad at first, but I can say with all honesty that now 4 months out and I do not have any side effects, but maybe rarely. If you are big and your sugars are out of wack the side effects are worth it. Just get through the first 2-4 weeks and be smart, don't stuff yourself especially at dinner. Als F 42 4 months

 1  To lower Blood Sugar A1C Severe stomach issues including upper and lower digestive track. Was able to keep food down on 1.2 dosage but as soon as dosage was raised to 1.8, I was deathly sick. I will not be going back on it because I feel that it is poison to my body. Did loose 20 lbs in 6 weeks, but it was because I was only eating about 1000 cal. a day. Had no desire to eat, look at, or cook food. Had no energy at all and felt more depressed. It did lower my blood sugars, but as little as I was eating, it's no wonder. I also experienced headaches and bloating the whole time I was on Victoza, even at the lowest dosage. F 53 45 days

Reduced my appetite somewhat, but my motivation to exercise was reduced as well, so it was a wash. I was impressed by how painless the injections were. Disappointed that it didn't work for me.

 2  Borderline Type2 & Weight Loss Nausea, bloating, diarrhea, cramping, fatigue My upper and lower GI side effects started a few hours after my first dose and have only intensified. I am nauseated all the time, and my stomach is tender and bloated. I feel like I need to have a massive burp, but the little ones I can produce don't give any relief. I have now learned that this med slows emptying of the stomach, so the symptoms make sense. The thought of food makes me want to throw up; if you can't eat, then of course you're going to lose weight... this just isn't the way I want to do it, LOL. I will not be continuing with Victoza, and pray that it won't take long for these symptoms to fade away. F 45 7 days

 3  Type 2 diabetes Lots of abdominal pain, thought it was my gall bladder and after lots of tests found out it is not. Now have started the very bad sour tasting belching, diarrhea, that will be followed by severe throwing up. Notice if I am stressed it gets worse. I can't stand the burping and the gas. Was going to have more tests ran until after reading all the comments on here. Plus I have no energy at all. I took it for awhile in the past and never had this kind of problem. But now it is getting intolerable. I was loving it until I have been getting so sick. I thought I kept catching the stomach bug going around. I am going to lay off a few days and see what happens. I have noticed that if I eat raw veggies, fruits and a small piece of chicken, and very small helpings the symptoms go away. But it also makes my blood sugar drop as well. I have lost nearly 60 pounds on this and love that. But hate how I feel. I long to be back to me. Going to talk to my doctor about this. F 59 1 years

 1  Type 2 diabetic I did well until four weeks ago and developed a very sore throat and bronchitis. I had taken it for two months with no problems . I took antibiotics and it helped a little and then things got worse. I looked up side effects and says sore throat,, upper respiratory infection , and bronchitis. My doc didn't think that the Victoza was the cause.. I insisted on going off the Victoa and the symptoms disappeared in three days. I may try it again but not until feeling well again F 52 3 months

 3  Type 2 Diabetes Initially started on o.6 mg, then after 2 weeks went to 1.2 mg. Also started on Metformin, 2000 mg a day. I was confined to home with diarrhea 3-4 times per day; however, after consulting with my doctor, it was the high dose of Metformin, so went down to 1000 mg and the diarrhea cleared up. I do however, have terrible dry mouth at night; I think using the CPAP machine does not help. I am going to go back down to 0.6 mg and see how I do on that. The dry mouth is so bad my tongue is literally stuck to the top of my mouth, and my lips stuck to my gums. It's awful. However, on a positive note, I've lost 25 pounds. F 55 4 months

 5  weight management/prediabetes minor nausea 4 hours after shot for the first several weeks. however, this stopped over time. this has worked very well for me; was 50 lb overweight at 5'1" and could no longer reduce by regular methods. combined with strict dietary changes (low carb, no fruit/ added sugar/starches) and exercise, I lost 45 lb in less than 5 months. regained energy, prob due to weight loss and mild hormone therapy. No nausea, never had vomiting or diarrhea. I will be transitioning off victoza (ramping down dosage now) and dr. expects I will be fine, perhaps may need metformin in future, but will see how it goes. will keep dietary changes and exercise.

 1  type 2 diabetes At 0.6 I did not experience any noticeable problems. Lost a few pound. Was increased to 1.8 and taken off Lantus. Appetite decreased. Developed pain in rib cage. Low blood sugar levels, fatigue, dizziness. Decreased to 1.2. Rib cage pain is worse as time goes on, Shortness of breath when trying to sleep, loss of sleep, Dry mouth in the early morning hours while trying to sleep. Blood sugar has come back up to 140-160. Rash has developed, Thought it may be shingles but not the case, pain going around sides toward back, still very tired, neck pain, shoulder pain is starting to develop, and have a strong burning pain across my abdomen and on both sides of it. Feels like my insides are cooking. I had just gone into see my doctor on Tuesday. I am going back today and demanding they take me off of this medication before these symptoms get any worse. I would only use this as a last resort . It will help you lose some weight, but that isn't a good reason to use it. Rapid weight loss can also be a precursor to cancer, so maybe it's not something to feel that great about. All I know is, my body is telling me not to use it anymore and that's good enough for me. Good luck. If I find out I have pancreatitis or worse I will let you know. M 56 2 months

 4  type 2 Initially nausea but I found if I gave the injection and then ate breakfast within 10 minutes, it was much better. Since then just random bouts of nausea when I go too long without eating. At the end of my second week, I started getting extremely bad diarrhea . It would happen shortly after eating. And usually 2-3 times after a meal. That equals 10 or so bouts a day. So far I'm very happy. It's not an easy drug to get started on. But I stuck with it through the first week and it has been very tolerable the second week. My blood sugars have dropped significantly. Back in to the 90-110 range 2 hours after eating. I am on 2,000 mg of metformin and 5mg of glipizide twice a day. But I suspect that as I continue to lose weight and eat better, those will be able to be eliminated. So far I've lot 10 lbs in two weeks. My appetite is very mild, bordering on not interested in eating. Without even trying, I am eating 1/4 of the amount of food I usually eat in a day. And I'm feel full all day long!!!! It took a week to get my energy back. I realized right away that if I'm eating a small amount of food it is more important to eat nutrient-dense food and my energy has rebounded. My only hurdle now is to figure out how to stop diarrhea. I am going to start with greek yogurt in the mornings and some probiotics as people have suggested here. It is tough to get started but I believe I'm past the worst of the bad symptoms and it's been very tolerable this last week. M 46 2 weeks

 1  Type 2 Diabetes DO NOT TAKE THIS DRUG.. IT IS A POISON TO YOUR BODY. It is most possibly the worst drug ever. Yes I lost weight and my A1C was lower but I had to undergo $100,000 worth of testing after I took this drug. It completely messed up my body and is so not worth it. Being in the hospital because of a drug is not ok. The people who have only been on it for 5-10 days and are commenting should not be able to. Yes, I too was fine for the first two weeks. Just wait you will feel like death soon and your body will not be able to function. It is a very harmful drug that should not be allowed on the market. Please listen to your body!!

The palms of my hands would become very red, my mouth would get very dry and I could feel the ridges in the top of my mouth. My first episode began on the third day of taking the Victoza, and I had approx. 1 episode a week until I stopped taking it. My first episode required a visit to the ER and another visit the paramedics were called. That was the first time I had ever been to an ER or had the paramedics called.

 5  glucose intolerance/prediabetes Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, migraine (usually not all at the same time, thankfully) I started at loading dose of .6 for several days, then went up to 1.2 which was a bad idea because I got very ill with vomiting and diarrhea , also some muscle cramping in the backs of my legs and even got a terrible migraine. Backed down to .6 and symptoms left. Now I go up a click every few days, working my way up to my prescribed dose of 1.2. Currently on .9 dosage. I lost 10 pounds initially but have not lost any more weight even though I hardly eat at all, I'm just not hungry.

 1  Type II Deabetes Debilitating nausea, vomiting, extreme fatigue. I had a Lap Band, and thought that my symptoms were from that, so eventually I had the Lap Band removed. In the recovery phase from removing the Lap Band, the symptoms intensified greatly. Food made me very nauseated, and I could hardly make it through a day at work. Then I ran out of the needles for injecting Victoza, and the next day I was much better. Got needles, took Victoza and the following day I was back to feeling rotten. So I stayed off the Victoza over the weekend, again felt much better. Saw MD, switched to another antidiabetic medication and have had no further symptoms! Victoza, along with Metformin and diet, exercise, did help keep my HbA1c lower, and I was blaming the nausea and often vomiting on the lap band. I did lose some weight while taking the Victoza, but at the cost of being completely miserable most of the time. I wonder if I would have needed to have the lap band removed had I discovered this adverse effect of the Victoza sooner? I guess I will never know. I would like to emphasize that for me, the nausea and fatigue were not just annoying, they were life altering. The side effects were often debilitating, and once I stopped taking the Victoza, the relief was amazing. I realize that the company might say that it was the Lap Band causing the side effects, and that is what I thought, and why I had it removed. But the symptoms continued unabated, in fact worsened as I was recovering from the surgery, and did not abate until I stopped taking the Victoza. F 63 2 years

 5  control blood sugars the first day I experienced irregular heartbeat about 4 hours after the dose. This lasted till 5am the next day. I took magnesium and havent had that problem since. Day 3 I ate my "usual" amount for breakfast, and later was nauseated, and later had diarrhea, but when not eating my habitual amount I am fine. Today day 5 had a snack in the morning of cashews, and almonds, and about 45 min. later was shaking from low Blood Sugar. Still taking a low dose of Metaglip (metformin and glipizide) which "kicks" the pancreas to produce all day. Hope to soon get off the glipizide. So far getting used to not wanting to eat as much. very excited about the results so far. minimal side effects! I would recommend to try this drug. for me it has been great so far! M 50 5 days

I guess it is still very early days and got to get over the side effects however hope this will not be a recurring thing as I hate having an upset stomach. I have heard and read great reports from using Victoza including from my doctor and phamacist. Looking forward to the results for reduction in blood glucost level but especially in weight loss. Main aim for weight loss is due to sleep apnea. M 41 2 days

 1  Type 2 Diabetic Have indigestion but not bad. When I raised the dosage to 1.2 I started having stomach cramping and diarrhea. I have called Victoza and they are clueless. They are of no help. They claim they have not studied people that have diarrhea and therefore have no info about it. Victoza is not working alone for me but along with my insulin I do have good sugars but the side effects to me are not worth it. Not impressed with the company and no one seems to want to try to talk to you. They are paying a lot of people for nothing. F 66 30 days

 5  Lower blood sugar Little tummy pains nothing excruciating. However; I'm wondering if Victoza causes problems with your menstrual cycle. I am due for my period amd having all the symptoms of being on my period but i have still not started. F 48 1 days

 4  type 2 headaches; wicked abdominal pain; N/D; some weight loss; sugars are the best they've been in years. I need to figure out if the side effects are worth the EXCRUCIATING pain! I REALLY hope I can stick with this. It's the first thing that's worked for me in years. F 45 1 months

 4  Type 2 diabetes/weight loss So far, no nausea, no headaches. A little tummy trouble. Biggest complaint so far is this HORRIBLE taste in my mouth! Use mouthwash, brush teeth, bad taste always comes back. Weird... So far (only 4 days in) I definately notice a difference in my urge to snack. Will keep using the med, but if anyone has any advice on getting the bad taste out, let me know! F 37 4 days

 4  PCOS Vomiting, nausea, extreme headaches Although it is the first drug that has helped me be able to lose weight, the side effects are awful. I have been taking it 2 months and still manage to vomit at least 3 times a week. On the bright side, it does work and I have lost 15 lbs. Just rough side effects. F 23 2 months
