    I started on 0.6 a week and worked my way up to 1.8 a week. I haven't had any bad side effects with this medication. No nausea, no sickness. I did have a slight headache the very first week I started. It hasn't help me lose any weight but it has kept my blood sugar under control.

    Hello. I heard some great things about victoza and some really bad things so I decided to try it out and hope for the best. Sad to say that I simply couldn't stand all the side effects that I encountered while on it. I felt like I was in a daze all the time and the nausea was really bad. I completely lost my appetite and after a week I started to throw up multiple times a day. I decided to sto ... Show Full Comment
