... any meal-- stomach pain worse in the morning. My doctor is absolutely no help at all! So I finally just went back down to the starting dose and my pain and nausea have suddenly stopped. Can now eat something more at meals without getting sick. Has anyone tried this approach? Blood readings are good and my weight is down 12 pounds

Some of the common side effects of taking Victoza are:
Constipation; decreased appetite; diarrhea; dizziness; headache; nausea; pain, swelling, or redness at the injection site; sinus inflammation; sore throat; upset stomach; vomiting. Weight loss could be due to the decrease in appetite.
It is surprising that your system could not get used to the med., would recommend that you try & seek an second opinion & request your doc to change a med which is perhaps more suitable to your system, take care, be well & safe!
