Have been on Bydureon since end of April. Had tried Byetta two yrs ago - didn't work, too complicated w/times, etc. Bydureon has worked, have not yet had A1C checked, but overall blood sugars have been really good. Also take Metformin 2x day and am weaning off of Levemir (which is SO easy!). Only major complaint: past two weeks I am so nauseous. Bad feeling in pit of my stomach, like a k ... Show Full Comment

IMHO Bydureon can not be injected effectively. Many times when the packaged injector is inserted into the vail the Bydureon powder in lost from the vail leading to incorrect dosages. The product requires VERY COMPLEX assemblage and the needle used is large an painful. BEWARE

I have been on this medication since near the end of March 2013. My first Dr appt is the end of June, we'll see what my A1C is then. About 8wks into the medication, I started w/nausea approx 24hrs after injection that lasts 24-72 hrs. I too have the lumps, some itch worse than others. I also get bruising and inflammation around the injection site.

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 ...
