First timer here. I have been on Byetta 5 for overa year and my dose was increased to 10. I started losing weight. Not really a bad thing but 80 lbs later my doctor decided to take me off of Byetta completely.
Since I have been off of Byetta i have been able to maintain my weight and by blood Sugar has been good. Not great but better than when I was on the Byetta.
While on the Byetta I noticed that my appetite went South! Breakfast was nausiating, lunch was better and Dinner was only half appealing. I would only eat a half of my meal. Doing much better now.
I test twice a day, ususally and I am rarely over 130!
Glad to share.

I was on Byetta for a while. Started out on 10 and was so sick i could hardly stand it. Doctor said I would adjust to it. After several weeks he dropped the dosage to 5. I was still sick. Whatever is in it doesn't agree with me.

Hi and welcome to DC. As you have learned Diabetes involves testing and modification. Glad you are doing better.
