The most appropriate time to take Victoza

I have started on Victoza for the last couple of weeks, and have noticed the difference in my appetite etc which is actually very exciting for someone who has always overeaten. One question though, I've been told to take it in the morning by my GP, however my "problem" time for overeating is after 8pm at night. I've noticed may take it with their evening meal. Would this have a better effect on my late eavening eating?

Victoza and GERD

I have GERD, which is reflux disease and the Victoza seems to make it worse. I also have a sliding hiatal hernia. Does anyone else have this issue? ## It is really hard to say what is causing it, it could be your medical issues, or the medication. The FDA warns that other side effects from Victoza may possibly include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, and decreased appetite. Is this the only medication you take? What have you tried to treat the GERD?

Victoza and Hives

I have been on Victoza for about 2 weeks now and I have broken out in hives/rash around my mid section. My body itches but I'm not sure if it's related to this or not. Anyone else experience this? ## It would be best to have this symptoms checked out by your doctor, according to FDA reports, there is a chance that it might be an allergic reaction. Have you been exposed to anything else new, such a a different detergent, soap, or perfume? Have you eaten any new foods? Are you on any other medications? ## I have been on Victoza for one month and all of the sudden I have multiple red welts that itch on my abdomen where I've been injecting.

Victoza shot placement

Im a new user. What happens if the shot isn't placed in fat? I have lots of belly fat so I don't see how I could miss a fat spot. Is the stomach muscles below or above the fat? Can the shot go to deep with long needle or to shallow with short needle? Using long needle I get real sleepy and don't feel like eating. Using the short needle I feel normal.

Why not included in Victoza patient help programs?

I am on medicare. After six months each year, the cost of Victoza throws me into the donut hole. I cannot afford the $1800 cost for Victoza for July through December so I do without, much to the dismay of my physician. (I start back taking it in January.) Are there any programs which might assist me for the last six months each year? Note: Novadisk has two patient assist programs, but for reasons I cannot fathom those of us on Medicare are specifically excluded from these programs. Together, my wife and I earn 340% of the federal poverty level for a family of 2. Thanks.

Digesting alcohol

Since taking Victoza I feel like my stomach is digesting alcohol differently. I feel like I have a hangover the next day even if I just have a few drinks. ## Hello, Terry! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you're having. Likely, it is due to 2 issues, the first issue, which I am not sure you are aware of is that alcohol can lower your blood sugar levels, thus when you drink, it could be making it drop too low. Have you ever checked your levels, after having a few drinks? The next issue is that alcohol can enhance the side effects of a medication, so you may experience more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than usual, after having a few drinks, as reported by the FDA. So, there is probably good reasons why you feel that way. Most medications, when combined with alcohol, ca...

victoza victories and side effects

I have been on Victoza for over 6 months. I am 8 pounds away from my first goal weight. Yes, I had a lot of weight to lose, but now only have a total of 58 pounds left to go! I had lost much of my weight before starting on Victoza but could not lose any more weight. I would maintain the weight that I had lost and could lose no further until taking Victoza. I posed questions to my Endocrinologist today. What is the end goal for my taking of Victoza? Can I eventually stop taking Metformin, Glybyride and Victoza at all one day? Will I be able to maintain my weight loss without Victoza one day? Here are the answers he gave me to me (only). Each person's situation may be different. He said that he is switching me to a new form of Metformin which is time-released and taken by pill only 1 ...

When will we know for sure ? ## Haven,t. Got and answer to my qwestion yet ., how do I get it? ## Hello, Al! How are you? There are risks associated with taking any medication, even those that have been on the market for decades. As to Victoza, it is approved by the FDA, so it's really not any more dangerous or concerning than any of the other medications out there. Regarding the thyroid cancer, that was at doses over 8 times those used in humans and any change seen in humans during trials was less then a percent. How is it working for you? ## What other things that could happened to us besides cancer ...
