    I have had very good results with this medication. My blood sugar levels have gone down so much that I barely need any insulin. No other side effects, except my appetite is curbed and I've lost some weight. I hope these results last.

    I have been using 7 weeks, my insurance will no longer cover Victoza so had to switch. I was excited about once weekly, but my blood glucose has gone up, Iâ??ve gained 10 pounds and my A1c is up as well.

    After 8 weeks I had to stop using Bydureon. I became nauseous 24/7, with vomiting, diarrhea, and extreme fatigue. I lost weight rapidly after becoming ill as I could barely eat. I was even throwing up water. I lost 8.2 lbs the first week, then 4 more lbs the next week. My blood sugar was good, but then I had to worry about low blood sugar since I could barely eat. Iâ??ve had little to no ener ... Show Full Comment

The injection site seems to leak after treatment. If you are prescribed this plan on an hour for treatment. Slow a half an hour after injection before moving around. I've found that leaving pressure on the inject ... Show Full Comment
