    Took Victoza and it brought my levels down to a more normal level right away. As time went on, I just couldn't eat, and had stomach pains. By the end of the first month I was in the hospital for an intestinal blockage. 5 days with a plastic tube up my nose and I was released from the hospital. Very dangerous side effects they forget to mention

    Victoza worked very effectively at reducing my A1C but it destroyed my taste buds making most foods, except sweets, taste terrible. I quit taking it because I wanted to enjoy the taste of food again. Since quitting it, food again tastes OK. I suspected that people lost weight because they experienced the same thing. I may try to go back on it intermittently because it does lower my A1C.

I kind of turns off the hungar switch, abnd it is much easier to diet and say " I don't really want that ". We're pleased that I am using it. If you are on Medicare, watch your cost.

    I took Victoza for almost as year and went to my dr. because I was having breathing problems. He couldn't find a reason. Then I got extreme diarrhea a couple of months later.
