I have been on Saxenda since December 16. I have lost around 18 lbs. At first I felt like it worked, no side effects such as nausea, fatigue etc but got full much faster. In the past few weeks, I don't feel as though it's as effective. I am hungry more often and I'm able to eat a lot more than I should. What gives? Anyone else felt this? If so, did anything work to get the 'feeling' back?
I'm the same way. Been taking daily since March 8, 2017. Had an 18 pound weight loss quickly, then when I got up to the 3 dose, it breaks my injection site out and itches. Remains red for several days. I am not losing but a pound or half pound a week now. I almost feel like the medicine is pooling in my leg and its not circulating where it's suppose to go. Any answers?
This same thing happened to me while I was on Victoza at the maximum dose. It stopped working I was able to loose 25 lbs. Dr. advised to stop the med and in 1 month try again, but nothing happened.
My Dr. put me on Saxenda and the first time I took it I felt a tingling all over my body which was very interesting to me, I knew something was happening, and it was from day 1 I felt it's strength and prayed it would keep on working for me to become successful @ weight loss. Today is my 2nd day on Saxenda and all is well. Keep on taking the med you might be surprised it might kick in all of a sudden. :)
I have been on 3.0 since June and have realized that it is working less for me. So I stopped it for a few days and started back at a 1.2. Ive also started taking it a bedtime instead of during the day. Ive been experiencing dizziness and blurred vision. Not a good feeling. I thought by taking my dose at bedtime it would help, but now waking up with bad headaches in am.
