    I have been on Bydureon for about 7 months now. My weight hasn't really dropped, but my A1C is now down to 6.5 from 10.8. I too have the bumps under my skin from the injections, but they go away after time. I have never experienced any itching or nausea, and the only side-effect I have had was feeling dizzy when I first started this medication. I take Tradjenta in conjunction with this medicat ...

    I have been on bydureon since September/12. I have lost 27lbs but nothing since and I seem to be holding with that so far. My A1C went from 9 to 7 which was great also and my appetite has gone way down. Metformin made me feel like I was starving all the time. The only thing that bugs me are these hard lumps on my stomach from the injection sites. The Doc told me not to worry about them and I don&# ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this medication for about six months . I read everything I could before getting started so I was educated on the expectations and side effects. The problem that I have is that it seems that alot of the medication is left in the vial, even after mixing well. Worried that I may not be getting the full dose and effect. Otherwise love the once a week dosing. Life got a little e ... Show Full Comment

    My doctor prescribed this without checking my family history. My father died of thyroid cancer. Was anyone else prescribed this med and have thyroid cancer in their family? The medication did not help at all and made me sick all the time. But the worst of it is that now I need to have an ultra sound every year.

    I have been taking Bydureon since the first of December. At first lots of diarrhea but no other stomach issues. I think that was more from the increase in Metformin the doc ordered. The symptom that is bothering me now is that my hair is falling out like crazy. My bs went from 7,5 to 6. I am very happy about this. Have not lost any measurable weight however. I am turning into a lumpy, fat, ... Show Full Comment
