Yes I started to get severe cramping in my legs, side, stomach, along with a few other areas. I reduced my Victoza from 1.2 to 0.6 ml and it has disappeared. I did this about five days ago and will be contacting my Doctor about this side effect as soon as I can this week.
My last leg cramp took several days for the pain to disappear.

I just started Victoza this week. I started having leg cramps the FIRST day, and every day since. I hope they go away soon! I couldn't find any other reference to cramps and Victoza on the web.
I do have Fibromyalgia and diabetic neuropathy. But never had this kind of cramp on a continuing basis.
Hope yours has cleared up... would like to know. Any others have cramps too?

I have had sleep waking leg/foot/toe cramps LONG before starting Victoza(3/5/2012). Mostly at night but on occasion during the day if standing. Not unusual to get a cramp if using lawn mower or snow blower.
MY feeling is that it is statin related. I take Lovastatin 40 MG 1 daily.
Been on V for a week and can not blame V but have had cramps for the first 4 days after I started my injection (Tue-Fri). None last night.
I have discussed with MANY Doctors and can summarize with one specialists comment.
"Bob I have good news and bad news.
The bad news is that medical science is well aware of leg/foot/toe cramps but has NO CLUE what the cause/cure/prevention is.
The good news is that it is not fatal"
I keep searching... and monitoring.
Meanwhile I keep a running xls of the cramps and locations.
