I was on Byetta, (AKA Lizard Spit,) then Victoza, and both caused nausea -I just had started insulin a few months before, and so it was too much. I want to try it again though. I have RN friend, a non-diabetic, that lost 100 lbs. So there are many successes. :)

Sparrow29 get ready to drop some weight
At first it might make you feel a little nausea but it will stop. I will say it's very expensive even with insurance but I will ask you to ask your Dr if the reps leave a discount card with them and if so ask them can you have one. Go on line activate it and share it with your pharmacy, it could save you an extra 25-50 dollars. I was on it for 5 months and lost 53 pounds. From a 40 waist to 34-36 waist. Your gonna be so happy. Side effects i haven't had any at all. All bit that little nausea. Good luck to you. And God bless you
