 1  High A1C At .25 did not have any symptoms and started losing weight, about 5-7 pounds, the first 2 weeks. A month later, I went to .50, and that is when all the fun began. Incredible gas, awful smelly disgusting burps, severe painful stomach bloating, nausea, some vomiting, very frequent diarrhea. I felt many times like I was dying. Ended up in the ER twice for IV fluids, medications and a whole battery of tests including an abdominal CT. The CT came back abnormal but no one can really say how that happened or what is wrong with me. I suggested that the Ozempic was causing this, but the doctors said probably not. But after reading all these reviews I say most likely the Ozempic. This is a miserable existence that no one should have to go through. This medicine cannot be good for anyone. I cannot eat anything without fear of getting sick. I cannot go anywhere because of all the diarrhea. I cannot sleep because of all the stomach gurgling and rumbling and abdominal pain. All I can do is sit and suffer until it passes, which can take until the next day. I cannot do anything. I was supposed to take a .50 shot yesterday, but I decided to quit taking this medication. So now I am 1 week since my last dose and sicker than ever. Does anyway know how long it usually takes for the side effects to go away? This is awful!! M 68 2 months

 4   Sick Stomach, Fatigue, Diarrhea, constipation (at beginning). Side effects eased up over the months and food choices. Still have good weeks and tougher weeks after 3.5 months. started .25 dose for 4 weeks then .5 since then. FBG has come down 100pts. Have not had A1c yet but it will be lower based on daily readings. This is not a drug where u can eat whatever u want. It will punish u for too much carbs, too much food, fried food. Basically the healthier u eat the less the side effects are. The loss of appetite / cravings is very strong. I have to make myself eat and nothing sounds goods. I typically eat around 800cal per day and nvr feel hungry. As a result I have lost 22lbs in 3.5 months so far. My biggest concern is the lack of calories and lack of energy to do any physical activity, which I have done almost none of. M 54 3.5 months

 1  Lower A1C I vomited for two days. I learned that if l ate, l would feel sick so l ate less. Even the small amount of food l ate made me feel sick: fatigued, bad pain in my abdomen especially below my left rib. I ate something 4 of the 7 days that l have taken this medication. I lost weight because l was afraid to eat. The smell of food sometimes made me nauseous. I felt dizzy and spent most of the week in bed. I had acid reflux also. Some people can't tolerate this medication, I'm one of them. F 55 7 days

 1  Diabetes Type 2 Experienced nausea, diarrhea, mild stomach cramps & increased acid reflux at the started dose of 0.25 mg weekly for first 2 weeks & severe gas & bloating resulted along with eye "floaters" too. After that I was instructed to increase to 0.50 weekly thereafter. Experienced severe gas & stomach cramps at night w/constipation followed with immediate vomiting. After vomiting I finally had a solid bowel movement but then had loose stools. Later in the day this happened I started to experience lower back pain. All day long had mild diarrhea & stomach cramps & fatigue. Called my internist who had prescribed this & haven't heard back. I called Ozempic's 800 number & related aforementioned side effects & to ask how long does it take to get back to normal after taking oneself off of Ozempic & they said ~5 weeks. Ozempics customer service representative tried to tell me that the period of 4-5 weeks is the amount of time it normally takes to get adjusted to this medicine. I've not experienced any positive results at all. This has impinged my quality of life & for the sake of loosing weight it's not worth feeling lousy all the time. Am going to press my internist to take me off this gif awful "medicine." If she won't do that then I will do it myself. F 67 5 weeks

 3  Type 2 diabetic with high number When I started at the .25 dose I felt bloated, full, constipated, extreme fatigue, didn't really want to eat and when I did I had a couple times where I vomited. That went away by week three. Week 5 I started the .50 dose and have slightly less of the original bloating, fullness of the first dose. I do have some fatigue and some cramping. I get on and off pain in the upper left hand side of my abdomen, just below the last rib. My BS numbers were lowering a lot when I first started. Some mornings I woke up with 81, 92, which is unbelievable for me. But it seems my body got use to it. I'm hoping with the newest dose (.50) I'll start seeing some lower numbers again. My biggest complaint is I have gained 6 pounds when I am eating less. I don't eat well but I wasn't when I started the medicine either so I'm very surprised at the weight gain and can't find anything online that talks about it. F 55 32 days

 4  Weight loss The only issue has been extreme constipation. I have NO URGE, NO BLOATING and NO FEELING of bowels being full. Taking Metamucil daily and hasn't worked. Been several weeks since last BM so tonight I'll attempt Ducolax suppository. If that doesn't work then a call to my DR. F 50 7 days

 4  Type 2 diabetes and weight loss Severe demon sounding sulphur burps, cramping to the extent that I can't lift my 2yr old, nausea/sickness, severe diarrhoea and backache. Spoken to my diabetes team and they are thinking of taking me off this due to side effects. My blood sugars have come down dramatically. Although the scales say that I haven't lost much weight my clothes tell a different story. I have gone down 2 Jean sizes. The constant burping is becoming embarrassing because the smell isn't restricted 2 the area that I burp, it travels throughout the house. And it's embarrassing when I am out. My children run away from me when I have gassed the house out,sometimes the only way to get rid is to be sick which also stinks rancid. Thankfully the diarrhoea starts in the middle of the night or very early morning and only lasts for an hour. It is beginning to frustrate me because its doing what it should but the side effects are effecting my lifestyle. Take at your own risk is all I can say. F 39 3 months

 1  Lower a1c Constant nausea and abdominal pain. Unbearable cramps in the middle of the night. Regurgitated food constantly. Every few weeks I would have a flair that would include violent retching and vomiting and diarrhea ended up in the ER twice to get fluids. Couldn't keep anything down. Would last 1-3 days I would be in bed and running to the bathroom. Had foul burps that tasted and smelled like fermented rotten fruit. But I did lose some weight so not all bad. The side effects never went away. It ruined my life. Plain and simple. M 45 6 months

 4  Pre Diabetes Abdominal pain, can't cope with food smells, loss of appetite but this makes me think its only working as I didnt have a switch to stop eating before, choosing healthier options as well. Walking everyday. Also vomiting after taking 0.500mg injection and now since starting the 1mg. The good outweighs the bad from the side effects. I have lost 25 pounds in 4 weeks! I just have to wait until my body gets adjusted to it is all. F 36 5 weeks
