 4  type 2 diabetic When I first started at the .25mg, all was well. No stomach upset, no egg burps, and blood sugars slowly coming out of 300 range into the 200's. After about a month I was bumped up to the .5mg. I would take it and then spend a few days in the bathroom. Couldn't eat, didn't want to drink anything. The egg burps came loud and proud. After being on that dose for about a month, the symptoms went away. My blood sugars made it down into the 150's. After a few months, I was bumped up to the 1mg. I got all the same symptoms. Blood sugars ran 55-120. A1C went down from close to 14 at the start, to 7.2. Oral meds decreased. I have troubles staying regular on my shot. I take my actos and glipizide every day, but end up hating poking myself so darn much, that I hadn't taken my shot in almost 2 months. Well, I'm finding out it's tough going back onto it at full dosage. I pretty much feel sick all the time right now. My numbers there climbing back up into the 200's though, so I'm fighting through it all to get my numbers back down. It can make you feel sick, but it does go away eventually. F 39 10 months

 4  Pre-diabetes and weight loss At first, burping, sour stomach, nausea, stomach cramping, slight headaches. Several weeks in when taking oral medications I started to feel like my medications were stuck in my throat (even the smallest of pills). Light headedness, dizzy. The worst symptom has by far been constipation. I was constipated before but we think it might have worsened due to ozempic I feel full after a small meal and no longer have cravings for sweets! I have lost 32 lbs In 5 mos without trying . I've been happy with the results but am temporarily stopping the dose to rule out if this is the cause for severe constipation (go on average 1x per week). Otherwise I liked the results it was providing. Figured I'd wait 5 weeks to see if I start to go to the bathroom regularly. F 47 5 months

 3  Diabetes I have terrible headaches that come on about 4 hours after injecting. These last almost till the next injection day. I have excruciating upper and lower abdominal pain, sulphur burps and severe nausea, this results in vomiting after almost every meal. I also have severe diarrhoea most days. These side effects were so bad for the first 3 months my GP didnt increase my dose and she stopped another medication I was taking. Since then the side effects arent always as bad, on the odd day I can feel great And the side effects are to a lesser extent!! But the sulphur burps, vomiting, pain, nausea and headaches are still there just to a lesser degree. It curbed my appetite, probably down to the nausea and vomiting. I find if I eat high fat foods then my side effects are even worse. I also find if I try to eat more than a very small childs portion the side effects kick in severely too. I have lost weight, which is to be expected when you arent eating and you have vomiting & diarrhoea continually. I do keep saying I cant take it anymore its making me feel so ill, but I persevere and will until my bloods are done again at the end of August. If it keeping them in check then I will continue. I find Rennix Deflatine and Buscopan do really help with the wind and pain. F 48 4 months

 5  Diabetes At first severe stomach pain, no appetite. This all went away, except the horrible gas from the south end. Now that I have passed the year mark I am having some unusual abdominal pain that I have not investigated past an ultrasound. As far as my A1C its a miracle worker! M 48 1 years

 3  High blood sugar and A1C 8.5 Bad sour stomach, nausea, vomiting, bad diarrhea, mild upper stomach pain. Occasionally waking up with bad sour stomach which resulted in severe diarrhea and vomiting. Burping and very gassy with bad sulfur odor. This lasted for a day. Next week on same day happened again w/o vomiting though ( 4 days after injection). 2 days later happened again. Only taking .5mg. Suppose to start 1.0mg yesterday but didn't take any ozempic at all! Going to call my Dr do discuss other options. Stopped taking metformin because of unpredictable diarrhea and now there is a safety recall on it....the side affects of ozempic is worst! It can mess with your pancreas not to mention possibility of thyroid cancer. Make sure you read the fact sheet the pharmacy gives you with this Rx! Noticed mild loss of interest in some foods and decreased appetite. In 3 months have only lost 8 lbs and that's with exercising, 1400 cal day and eating low carbs. Because ozempic can cause hypoglycemia I have switched freestyle libre to dexcom G6 because it has an alarm that will alert you if bs is to high or low and has continuous reading w/o having to constantly check it and no calibration. Hope to find Rx without these side effects...having diarrhea and nausea and having to take more meds like Imodium and pepto bismol is no way to live plus I take care of hospice patients in outpatient settings. These side effects definitely interfere with my job! Not worth it to me. F 56 3 months

 3  High A1C Usually 3 hours after taking the injection, I am unusually sleepy & freezing. I'm hot natured so this is new to me. I sleep most of the afternoon with lots of blankets. I feel like I've been drugged with a sleep aid. Any advice? The injection doesn't hurt. I've lost 14.5 pounds, my daily bs went from 280+ down to 90-120. Getting ready to have my A1C checked. That will give me answer if it's working. F 54 5 weeks

 4  to lower A1C Similar side effects as others, Nausea, Gas, Acid Reflex, maybe Diarrhea but it may come from Metformin. At .25 ml dose these side effects lasted four hour once a week, Increased dosage to 1.0 and side effects last 15 hours straight once a week. Does reduce appetite and causes weight loss. Has lower A1C from 7.0 to 6.5. Have loss 20 pounds. Now within 7 pounds of normal BMI. But side effects are lengthening in duration, maybe due to lower weight versus dosage used. But side effects when they show up have affected productivity at work. M 63 4 months
