Been on for one week and just bumped up dosage to 1.2 with evening injections. Had a work party the next evening where I ate a reasonable amount of food and had a few drinks but then within an hour I was in the parking lot violently throwing up with diarrhea. (Yes. In the parking lot! Ugh!) when I finally got home I noticed I was red, blotchy and swollen. Can’t determine if it was allergic reaction to food or just a reaction to Saxenda. Once my body had purged the food I started to feel much better. Anyone else have something like this?
Anyone had a case of violent nausea and diarrhea after eating too much on Saxenda?

Yes, I had stomach swelling, burping and vomiting from over indulging whilst on 1.2ml of Saxenda. Took it as a warning sign. Had eaten fish and chips whilst feeling full. Big mistake. Sticking to bland food and salads.
I have also noticed that eating a lot will bring in diarrhea and/or vomiting. I’m on a dosage of 1.2. I started my day with a fair sized bowl of oatmeal. From then on I felt gross. It felt like I had a big lump in my stomach. Then it progressed to foul burps. I finally vomited and actually feel much better. I have had the diarrhea and vomiting at the same time in the past (fortunately I was at home. I feel for you in the situation you found yourself in). I didn’t get any swelling though.
I’m going to give small meals a try to see if I can alleviate this problem. If anyone else has any ideas on how to curb the gastro issues I’m listening!!
I’ve lost 15 lbs since the end of October. I could lose more if I could exercise but I currently have a broken foot.
