    I started using this 3 months ago. Upset stomach was the biggest issue but has gotten better. I do like that it has curbed my appetite. Lost 6 pounds. My A1c is at 5.3 with this medicine. I will continue to use it as it’s been effective.

    Effective but difficult side effects. Lowest dosage has lowered my daily sugar average from 180s to 130s. The first 2 weeks came with nausea, lack of appetite, dyspepsia, constipation. serious lack of energy. After 4 weeks am still dealing with intermittent nausea and lack of energy.

Two days later we found my mom sick in bed. She couldn’t walk, severely dehydrated, nausea, and vomiting. She couldn’t even sip water. We spent 4 days in the hospital on iv fluids and vitamins.

    8 months of using this medication and still I do not look forward to the painful shot each week. Its like being stung by wasp after the self injecting mechanism drives an oversized needle into my body. Trulcicty apparently in an effort to maximize their profits opted not to use one of the more gentler delivery systems already available (Victoza and others). I am reviewing my options for future pre ... Show Full Comment

    Just completed third month without any side effects. Took .75 for first month and increased to 1.5mg. A1c was 6.1 after first month, down from 7.3. Next A1c check is a month away. I was on Metformin prior(always nauseous and had diarrhea), nice not to take pills everyday. Lost 10 lbs. too.
