For Weight Loss “I was above my recommended weight since my childhood after I got my periods. years after years I accepted that I’ll remain like this forever little I know the side effects of being overweight. Somehow I got married but faced problems in my marriage due to my weight so book an appointment for my endo. She prescribed me this medicine. I have been taking this medicine for last 3 days and so far so good. Except nausea all looks good. I hope everything will be fine the way it turned out for you guys :)”

For Weight Loss “Since I’ve been on victoza as 2/5/18, my symptoms have been mild, I have experience constipation and very bad heartburn and tiredness & mild headaches. I’m not sure if I need to complain but it’s a little irritating. But my appetite has decreased my blood sugar numbers are down.”

For Weight Loss “I started victoza at a dose 0.6 on 1/27/18. Some side effects nausea and burping, anyone have any suggestion for this or certain foods to eat. I’m pleased with my results so far have not increased dose yet.It really curbs your appetite. I went off of it for a couple of days and appetite increased tremendously.”

For Weight Loss “Started Victoza on Jan 28/18 1 week at 0.6 second week 1.2 third week 1.8 and started 3.0 today. I had some headache and fatigue the first week but pressed on. I take it at 8pm thinking if I was to have any side effects I would sleep them off. Seems to be successful. I find my appetite hasn’t changed and haven’t noticed a difference in my weight. I’m taking Victoza to help with my A1C levels, 6.4 which is leading me closer to being diabetic but I have struggled with weight. I’ve been turned away from gastric bypass twice because I’m apparently on the lower end of the weight scale. I’ve completely changed my eating habits, went vegan and exercise daily. But nothing changes. I’m extremely frustrated. How long do you have to be on this to notice if its working? I started 3.0ml today hoping that with a steady increase and I’ve actually made it to 3.0ml the weight loss will start to happen. Just tired of the struggle. Any thoughts??”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “I have been taking victoza for about 3 months now. I started on the 0.6 dose and increased until the 1.8 dose. I am very pleased that my A1C went from 11 down to 7, but I am now experiencing some pretty horrible side effects. I have now been diagnosed with gastroparesis, having horrible stomach pains, awful tasting belching and no appetite. Nausea is constantly present and now taking three more medications to help ease the effects. (Carafate, Bentyle, Zofran). I have read many reviews and think I will try to decrease the dose to see if the side effects will lessen. I don’t want to give up too soon as my sugar level has went from 390’s to low 100.”
