I am just wondering if it's just Byetta by another name?

From Bydureon.com ~ "BYDUREON is a long-acting form of the medication in BYETTA® (exenatide) injection so both drugs should not be used together. BYDUREON is not insulin and should not be taken instead of insulin. BYDUREON is not for people with type 1 diabetes or people with diabetic ketoacidosis. BYDUREON is not recommended for use in children. It is not known if BYDUREON is safe and effective in people with a history of pancreatitis or severe kidney problems."

Hi! Welcome to Bydureon! I have been on this med since February and really like it. It did take it awhile to get loaded into my system. There is not much out there for Bydureon patients, there is a Face Book group called Byetta and Diabetes with lots of real time patients and lots of info. Hope to see you posting about your journey with this med.
