I've been taking Victoza for a couple of weeks with great results. With Thanksgiving looming, I'm wondering when to take my shot. I typically take it in the early evening. On Thanksgiving, my big meal will be at 2:00. Do I take the shot before the meal? I'm not on insulin, and I also take Metformin with my evening meal.

I've been on Victoza for 1.5 yrs. Take it when ever, I do. Good for controlling BG but only lost 5 pounds. My doc said to partake but watch the portions.

It's great you're planning ahead for how to best manage Thanksgiving. This is a great question for your physician or diabetes educator, and they'll be able to give you the best guidance. ~Lynn @Glucerna
