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.

Comment:
I have completed 7 weeks and blood sugar has dropped significantly. BS has dropped from 280 average morning test to 170 average. I take it with Metformin. The only side effects I've noticed is itching at/near the injection sites and lumps/bumps that measure from half an inch to about 2 inches.

I have been a type 2 diabetic for about 17 years now. I was taking 15mg Actos, 100mg Januvia, 1500mg Metformin...but the issue was I could not tolerate the GI issues of Metformin. My doctor recommended this Bydureon, took me off the Metformin and Actos and continued me on Januvia. I am in week 5, seeing great results. FIrst week I had a little cramping/diarrhea but none since. Definitely cut ... Show Full Comment
