    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.

    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.
