I have only taken 2 shots. The shots have been easy to assemble and to inject. I haven't taken it long enough to know its effectiveness, that's the reason for the low score. I'm not satisfied yet.

Blood sugar is stable, but my A1c was at 5.6 when I started using this 2 months ago. My Dr. Just wants it lower. I have just lost 50 lbs, and Dr. said this would help with weight and lower A1c, too. Maybe, but I have lumps everywhere I have injected the drug, and they itch. One has turned into a bad sore. AND, MY HAIR IS FALLING OUT! No! I'm not kidding. Nothing else has changed in my di ...

I have been on Bydureon for about 4 weeks. My numbers are gradually coming down into the mid 150's. The Doctor (and the Bydureon studies) say that max effectiveness or steady-state occurs around 6 weeks. Side effects are the nodes in my stomach that also itch sometimes (the itching is gradually going away as well. Some nausea.
