I'm been taking Byetta, the 10 mcg dose via pen and am curious about other folks who might be using this lizard spit also.

I have been on Byetta for 3 months. I had occasional stomach upsets, but it is getting better. It really curbs your appetite. I've lost 18 pounds.

Yes, i used it and lost 40 pounds in six months. Then i had surgery and was off of if for two months. I tried starting it again but my stomach would no longer handle it. i even tried to just do the 5 mcg and i couldn't keep anything down. So I stopped and and the 40lbs came back but did not gain anymore then than the 40. Thank goodness for that. You might want to look up reports on it again. Reports have problems with byetta.

I've never heard of it so I looked it up. All I could find was an article written for physicians. It's probably too technical for most people but here it is: They stress that it's not for type 1's (such as myself) or pregnant / nursing mothers. Otherwise, it looks pretty good.

There is a web site I go to and it tells about all just type in what the med is and it tells all about it and has reviews from people who took it..good and bad reviews. I found it to be very helpful and will not take any med untill I look on this site and see the reviews.
