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 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 ...

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

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
