Heartburn has not been a documented side effect of taking victoza, however you must talk to the doctor who prescribed the med., take care & be well!
No,maybe because your stomach is empty alot it's causing it.If your having it to the point where your have to take something constanly i would say something.Maybe you could take the over the counter 24hr pill but check with the pharmacist to make sure it doesn't conflict with your med.
Yes. I have also been on Victoza and taking the 1.8 dose now. I have had heartburn for about 1 week now and have never had it before. I did some research and found out that heartburn is in fact a common side effect of taking Victoza. Hope this helps

Heartburn is a very common side effect of Victoza (liraglutide). It is also dose related in that the higher the dose the more likely it will occur and the more severe. If this medication is working for you talk to your Healthcare provider about ways to treat the heartburn. If it is not a beneficial treatment then you may need to discontinue and find a treatment that works better for you.
Yes it very much can!!
I’ve been taking prescription Prilosec (I can’t remember the generic name.) for 6 or 7 years now and I’ve been heartburn free the whole time. When I started taking victoza from small to the maximum dose I’ve had such bad heartburn with headaches. I have to keep a bottle of tums in my purse. For me, the headaches are so debilitating!! I have my appointment. Anyone with heartburn more than usual and they just started Victoza, it’s probably from the Victoza.
