I took the daily shot for several years. Now trying the once a week. For the last 4 months. It has left multiple large bumps in my thighs that are not going away. I really do not notice any effect of the drug at all. Considering stopping the medication. Not enough visible effect for the price of the medication. Exercise and diet works better.

I have injected the drug 2 times into my abdomen. The 2nd time I took the injection I had a severe reaction at the site of the injection which also inflamed the first injection site. I suffered severe burning and itching and no creams or gels stopped the burning and itching. 8 weeks later I still have hard red lumps and itching at the injection site.

I had been using Bydureon for 8 weeks, when I started having severe stomach cramping along with vomiting and diarrhea. I thought it was the flu at first. Then I started noticing a pattern. I was getting sick the day before I was due for another injection, this went on for 4 weeks. My Dr. took me off immediately. I've not been taking it for 6 weeks and I'm still not back to normal.

Comment:
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. I'm having large injection site bump (about 2cm long), with reddness and itching. The itching is aggravating, never goes away. I might have a slight decrease in appetite.
