I'm currently taking this injection once daily. For the first week I was taking half the dose, now I'm taking the full dose (1.2 something). The only side effects I noticed were constipation and major lack of appetite (which I think is awesome!). My doctor said it's also a good aide for weight loss. As far as my sugar numbers going down, it's too soon to tell. They've gone down a bit, but not enough for me to think this is a miracle drug. Also, I just read the info the pharmacy gives you, and it said This medicine has been shown to cause thyroid cancer in rats and mice of course, with a higher risk the longer it's used, and it's not known if it causes thyroid cancer in humans. This will be addressed with my doctor, not cool.
For me the side effects were bad enough to stop. I had nausea, dizziness, lethargy, vomiting, major violent diarrhea, major loss of energy (I'm 40 and in good shape and couldn't walk a few blocks), zombie like brian, can't focus, you name it.
For me the quality of life was so bad, my numbers being perfect were not as important.
You will get honesty on this site. I've found that some of the Facebook user groups are moderated by people who don't want people to know the downsides.
