Hi everyone!!…I'm new at this site but I just wanted to ask if anyone was taking Victoza..I just started using it about 3 weeks ago and my doctor had told me that I should be loosing weight as well in controlling my sugars, but somehow I have been noticing weight gain and tiredness. Is anyone else on this site using Victoza?…if so, how are you doing with the shot?…many thanks!!

I've been on Victoza since diagnosis, 5/21/10. I lost very little weight but did lose inches. I go to the doctor after work and their scale says I didn't lose any weight but my scale says about 7 lbs, which goes up and down depending on what I've been eating.

Welcome to the site !
How are you ?
Victoza is the "new kid" on the block, in this country (USA) as far as type 2 diabetes medications.
