My doctor put me on Victoza in January, I take 1.8 mg. everyday and now follow it with 1000 mg of Metfortmin. Victoza is an injectable drug, but is not insulin.
It has made things a lot easier. I have lost 40 lbs., my hunger has come back under control. I eat just 3 meals a day and hardly snack any more between meals. In the past, I was taking Janumet and I was always hungry. This drug has made a big improvement to my diet and quality of life.

I am glad this medication helps. I had never heard of it and I did some research to learn. Seems it helps the Beta cells do their job more efficiently. It has side effects that would worry me. I hope you have continued success without any side effects.

Maj, I have a constant running conversation with my Endo. Due to the fact that this is a relatively new kid on the block he feels it is necessary to stay on top of it. The only side affect that I noticed was some slight nausea when I went from 0.6 to 1.2mg's but that has passed. Being able to reduce my Metformin has really made me happy.
