I have changed my medications several times since my diagnosis in November. My doctor thoughtfully put me on Victoza 3 weeks ago. I did experience nausea, but I was so happy with my numbers and how it cut my appetite. I was getting used to it, and then I ran out out of the pen that my doctor had given me. Apparently, the pharmacy was not authorized by my insurance to fill it, and I am now waiiting for the doctor's pre-authorization to be processed and in the meantime I am really struggling. It's like I have this ravenous beast inside that just wants to eat and eat…to make matters worse my sugar is high, much higher than it was 3 weeks ago before I started Victoza. I actually hit 325 after lunch today, and I didn't really overdo it. I ate a little bit too much maybe, but not enough to warrant this kind of spike. I'm stuck in this vicious cycle, high sugar leads to food cravings, and I'm really frustrated. I hope that I will get my authorization tomorrow because I have been so sick. Did anyone else stop Victoza suddenly and have this kind of reaction?
