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.
