    I have been on Saxenda for 6 weeks now and made it up to the 3.0 dose. I'm experiencing a great deal of acid reflux, nausea and when I eat - vomitting. I am seldom hungry but they may be because I have anxiety over vomitting. In terms of weight loss, I have lost 8lbs so far. It's going a bit slow for me but I'm still hopeful.

    As of this writing, I've been on Saxenda for 10 months. I worked up to full dosage as directed. Symptoms were a little nausea at first, but it went away within a month or two. It worked great at first, I wasn't hungry in the least and would forget to eat. I've lost 25 pounds but the last few weeks have gained back 3. The loss was slow. I feel at this point my body is used to Saxenda. I ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Saxenda for 9 days and have lost 5 pounds already. I have experienced some intermittent queasiness but feel full and have almost no appetite at all. I am now curious as to whether I should be taking a vitamin supplement to ensure I am getting sufficient nutrients?
