Victoza often causes weight loss but not always. After 3 months that should be about it unless you raise the dose up to 1.8
A lot depends on the individual- how well did you respond to the Victoza? My A1C dropped from 10.8 to just 5.8. I lost about 15 pounds overall Some people lose more some don't at all.
Are you taking any other medication? Insulin causes weight gain. If your taking insulin or a drug that increase insulin production (like glipized, glimepride or another sulfonylurea) then a lot of the effect may be washing out
