    I started saxenda since 2 months and I am on 3 dose since almost two weeks, I didn't loose any weight at all even my appetite still high, only the first week I felt dizzy and tired but then I believe I developed resistance to the drug, I hope to find related blood tests to find out the reason behind such bad result.

    I have been on the medication for 40 days. I have lost 17 pounds and was doing fine until two weeks ago. I started feeling nauseated most of the time. Then I started burping what seems like an egg taste/smell. After that came vomiting. I was at 2.4 so I cut back to 1.8. That worked well for about two weeks so I increased it.

    I have been on Sexenda for 1.5 weeks now and have felt nothing, except for the first day I have had no appetite and got a bit burpy. I am a bit worried that this could be my last hope and it may not work for me. So many people say they loose their appetite and have to force themselves to eat, still waiting for this "full feeling".

    At first this worked really well. It did curve my appetite. I got really concerned when I reached 3.0 cause I started having stomach pains and severe constipation. I told my dr. about it but all should could say is reduce the dosage and drink plenty of fluids. I did and I didn't get better until I took the dosage back to 1.2. I was also concerned with the size affects that was of this drug ... Show Full Comment
