I started saxenda on Feb. 6th 2017. I was expecting to experience the typical side effects (i.e. nausea, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, etc) that I've seen in other posts, but I have felt nothing so far. Has anyone taken this medication, not experienced any side effects, but still found it effective overall? My doctor mentioned that there are a small percentage of people that this medication does not seem to work on... I should note that I'm only on the first level of the dosage cycle (i.e. 0.6mg), so perhaps I will still feel something as I increase the dosage.
I've been on Saxenda since 3-17 and I have not had one side effect. My starting weight was 356 as of 3-17 and today I weighed 336. With that being said I have almost totally changed the way I eat. I try to keep my calorie intake at 1900 per day and I have not started exercising yet. I also went from 6-7 pops per day and I now only have a diet for lunch and about a gallon of water a day. Fast food has been taken completely out of my diet which has been hard because I am in my car all day with my job. So far this medication has been great to me at least.
