Hi,
I have been prescribed victoza starting next week. I am both excited and terrified. I just wondered if anyone had any experience of the drug and the results it has on weight loss and diabetes control as yet since diagnosis last year mine has been way high.

Hi Beebs grandma, I have never been on Victoza but it was on a list of drugs my doctor said he recommends if I have to take another medication (I'm currently on Metformin only), so I am wondering about it too. I have gone to the website and it as well as the other injectable drugs sounds scary to me so I understand how you feel. I've heard they are very helpful though at both getting blood sugar down as well as some weight loss. I hope you will get more info from those who are using it right now.

Been using Victoza for awhile now and it has helped me quite a bit in the weight loss area. I am using Victoza before dinner only and then Lantus before bed. Between the two, better diet and more consistent exercise that is planned I have been steadily dropping the weight slowly and keeping it off.

I have been on victoza for about 7 months now and love it. It brought my blood sugar down and weight is coming off
