 1  Diabetes T2 It did lower my blood sugar levels, but the side effects are NOT worth it. The first day I had no appetite, nausea, was uncomfortably bloated and a headache. The second day I couldn't eat or drink anything including water because it caused stomach cramping and the nausea to get much worse. By the third day I couldn't function. I was still experiencing nausea, headaches and bloating and a new side effect; severe diarrhea. I think the I only reason I haven't vomited is from shear force of will! My doctor warned me that the side effects could be uncomfortable, but this is too much. F 42 3 days

 3  Insulin Resistance, Thyroid Disease Extreme lethargy on days 3-4, some gall bladder pain, muscle aches and extreme fatigue. While I've been on Ozempic for nearly 6 months I've recently developed horrid flu-like symptoms after dosing that last for several days. Nausea is a constant but managed with Prilosec and anti-nausea medications. I've lost over 20 lbs. and my overall labs continue to improve but the symptoms are becoming unbearable. F 42 5 months

 3  Diabetes Type 2 I started taking synjardy in April because metformin wasn't working well enough. The synjardy (Jardiance/ metformin combo) wasn't lowering my daily numbers and A1C only dropped from 8.8 to 8.6. The 2nd week in July I then started Ozempic in conjunction with the synjardy. I haven't had my A1C tested again but I'm scheduled soon since beginning Ozempic. I am very happy with my daily numbers which vary from 98-135 or a fairly consistent basis. The problem I have with Ozempic appears to be a common problem as with everybody else on this post; bloating, sulfur burps and gas (which are so vile), diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting. The vomiting has happened 4 times so essentially once a month. However, it's just not like a 5 minute episode it is anywhere from 90 min to 2 hours of vomiting, not moving from the bathroom and emptying your entire stomach content as well as your intestinal content out the other end. Once that is over I'm fairly spent for the rest of the day and feel weak into even the next day. I have also lost weight. I probably lost 7 or 8 pounds on synjardy alone and then after adding Ozempic, I lost another 20 lb. So I'm very happy with the glucose results and weight loss but the other complications caused from Ozempic I'm not sure I will be able to continue to withstand. F 53 15 weeks

 3  A1C Type2 Diabetes Nausea, vomiting, constipation. After a few months some of the symptoms are better I have some unusual symptoms which - I don't know if they are from Ozempic but the onset was after. I like to hike and walk/run - after starting Ozempic there has been several times where I will be half way out on the hike and my stomach begins gurgling. You can audibly hear it sloshing around. Then extreme nausea where I have violent vomiting on the trail. Then I have to hike back out without being able to hydrate. This is super disturbing as it is good exercise that I feel I am no longer able to do. Doc checked heart, has an upper endoscopy nothing abnormal found. The other thing that has occurred is I developed scalp lesions like psoriasis or something and have now been going to a dermatologist. Just wondering if anyone out here has experienced any of the odd ones, especially the exercise induced vomiting. I think I am going to ask my doc to go off of it in a couple of weeks because of the symptoms are so difficult to deal with. F 59 10 months

 1  Type 2 Diabetic, PCOS, Ins Resistan Weight loss, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, constipation I started at 0.5 for type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance and PCOS along with Invokana. I did fine for 2 months. Dose was increased to 1mg and 3 weeks later I started having chemical like burps, not sulphuric. Within 45 mins of these burps I had severe nausea followed by vomiting and diarrhea. I missed 3 days of work. 2 weeks later, same experience, only much more intense with the vomiting non stop for 2 hours straight. I was so dehydrated I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. Overall, I think the science behind the drug, especially for insulin resistance and seeing my a1c and blood sugar down, is great. But to make me lose time at work, be so sick, now scared to eat anything and still dealing with residual GI issues after quitting Ozempic, I'd never take it again. The tradeoff was not worth it.

 3  Insulin resistance Diarrhea, nausea, gas pains, sulfur burps I started taking this medication with high hopes. I have insulin resistance due to PCOS. I started out taking .25mg for four weeks with no side effects and I was loosing weight, about 15 pounds. I went up to the 0.5mg dose and I have been so miserable. The constant gas pains, nausea, diarrhea and sulfur burps. I'm hoping since I'm only on week 2 of 0.5 that it gets better F 28 45 days
