On the evening of the day my 2nd dose was due (one week and 12 hours after 1st dose) I started itching intensely at injecton site. The itching has occured daily since then (now in 3rd day) so I did not take the 2nd dose. How long does the itching last? Why didn't it start before the 7th day? There is also a small bump at site.
You may want to either ask your doctor or talk to someone from bydureon. In my case I do have the bump but I don't have any itching at the site. Just some soreness.. And it usually last about a couple days or so.. I give my shot in the abdomen.. And the only problem I've notice that since it so sore that what I wear tends to irritate the area. But I've been taking it for 6 weeks now.. Makes me really thirsty drink plenty of water.. Hope this helps
The RN that showed me how to inject Bydureon worked with it's research testing. When I called her to ask about the itching, she told me to count to 10 before I took the needle out to make none of the drug leaked out on my skin. She also suggested, when injecting into my stomach to stand up. Since then, I do not have ANY itching. As far as the bumps, mine seem to take 6-8 weeks to go away, if I inject in my stomach. Less, if I inject in my thighs.
