    Have been taking this for 6 months with a gradual increase in dosage to 1.8 per day. My A1C went from 9.6 to 8.1. I expected it to be lower as I have also lost over 50 lbs. The worst side effects I have are bloating, if I eat more than a small amount and a sour stomach of the worst kind. Even went as far has having a bunch of Gastro tests but all were negative.

    On this medication for more than 2 years... lost 20lbs. Controls my glucose levels and A1C down from 8.1 to 6.4. No side effects, but a little constipation. Great drug!

    After being nauseous for a week, the drug was fine. The third week I started getting heartburn which continued into the 4th week. I'm waiting to see the doctor to see if this is a typical side effect and how long it lasts. I would hate to give it up as it has lowered my after meal blood sugar by at least 30. Has anyone else had this problem?

    Started taking this in July 2013. Nausea & diahrea was the biggest side affect. The nausea went away in a few weeks. I took the shot in the evening so wasn't nauseous all day, just in the morning. Needles are so small they hardly hurt at all. It decreased my appetite & I was able to lose 20 lbs. Still plagued with the diareha, but don't know if that is the victoza or the gallbladde ... Show Full Comment
