There are a few reasons why medication doesn't work. Pts are individuals and respond differently, if you exercised enough, did you follow the diet well, did you drink alot of water? Not knowing you its really hard to say why it isn't working for you.

Were you controlled before the victoza? I do know that drinking enough water can make a difference. I'll do a little more research on victoza and see what I can find out.
