Does anyone else suffer from severe constipation and stomach cramps. I cant get past the 0.6. After about a week I am so constipated that I'm in bed in pain for days. I really want this to work for me but not sure how to get past this?

Im just starting the 0. 6 myself,, I am constipated on a regular basis so I was hopeing that it would change with the victozia..I would check with your doctor to make sure the stomach problems you are having are not from the injection,, I take a herbal tea called senna ,from the health food store, it doesnt give me cramps and works well for me everytime,, if I didnt use that I wouldnt go at all or very little,, just check with your doctor to be safe,, I have two days to go till I have to increase..I hope we both do well on this,,, take care,, ps,, little finger problem , Im not yelling , lol
