I started at 1.2mg and after 3 days was very sick with stomach issues. My doctor cut me back to 0.6mg and I have been fine but I my hunger is back and I put on a pound (previously lost 7). Is there a special diet, time to eat, specific foods that could have caused my negative reaction or is that normal? ... GERD, gas, constipation, nausea, upset stomach. I plan on upping my dose to 1.2 in a few days but am very nervous about taking that much. What are your experiences... reactions, suggestions?
The side effects you have experienced are very common especially when first starting Victoza. You may use Victoza at any time of the day, with or without a meal, it makes no difference.
