i tried byetta and it worked well for me for about a year or longer then they came out with a warning about possible pancreas side affects and my dr. took me off and now nothing seems to work for me like byetta did.

I've been on it for two months. I just found out about it today. I've been off it a week (waiting on the prescription to be approved by Wellcare) and thinking about staying off. Metformin was working wonderfully by itself before the Byetta. I go to the doc next week.

I have found that I'm unusually moody while coming off of it though. My husband doesn't like that! lol

I tried it for about a year as well. The first 6 months it helped after that it didn't do any good so Dr put me on Janiuva for about a year and now went to insulin. With insulin A1C last time was 6.8
