Wondering if anyone has tried more than 20 mcg of Byetta per day and what effect the higher dose had?

20 is the max daily dose, 10 is the max in one go. That's the dose that has been tested, studied, trialed and has been approved as the top level you can take in a day.

What will happen if you take more? Impossible question. It may be that it wont work, it may be that it will cause serious issues, it may do nothing short term but cause problems long term. It may be fine and you get good control. Unless your doctor has some pretty rock solid reasons to do it and is very carefully monitoring you, there should be no reason to take more than the max dose.

I am currently on 10mcg 2x daily. I started at 5mcg and didn't notice a difference with the increase. I think my doctor had said that 10mcg was the highest dosage available. Not sure about that though.
