I am now on my second week with this medication. I love that it has only to be done once a week. This makes it soo convenient for me. I have no problems with lumps or other side effects. I don't see the number lowering as much as I would like to. I am thinking that my meter needs to be replaced and will try doing that and monitoring for an additional week or so. he best thing for me is t ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
My husband started taking this a couple of months ago in place of gly-buride. Each injection site has a knot under the skin. This cannot be a good thing! The only thing that can be happening is the medication is crystalizing in the muscle after injection. Everyone seems to be ok with this and accepting it as an acceptable side effect. The doctor said it was a normal side effect. However his mu ... Show Full Comment

Bydureon definetly has helped me!!! Nausea was horrible in the begining but has gotten better. I do have hard knots under my skin where I have given my shots in my stomach. I wasn't aware of this side affect & wished the doctor would have told me so I wouldn't have freaked out when I found the first little knot.

Comment:
I'd been on Byetta for about 2 1/2 years. Since starting Bydureon my blood sugar has been quite high. Readings mostly in the 200's. My doctor has increased my Actos from 15 mg to 30 mg per day. It's too soon to tell if there will be an improvement. Taking only one shot a week is great, that way I don't have to watch what time I eat. I hope my sugar levels improve.

Comment:
I have been on this med for 4 weeks now. At first I had diarrhea pretty bad, but that cleared up at the end of week 2. I still am not real hungry and my sugar levels are getting better. I shoot into my thigh and I have not had any itching, redness or lumps like others seem to be having. I also seem to have a little upset stomach from time to time or if I eat something more than I am use to eat ... Show Full Comment
