I am wondering how you faired with this? I am now on day 3 of Saxenda and yesterday I was extremely fatigued and in the evening I became nauseous after only 2 bites of my supper (I had eaten nothing else all day b/c I was too tired to eat and honestly not even hungry) After the nausea went away, I began burping non stop, so badly I could barely speak and then this morning the diarrhea started. Today I am not feeling the nausea as I decided to make sure to eat protein for energy, so this morning I had two boiled eggs and a small glass of milk and I did ok with that and for lunch I had a little bit of chicken, a few spoonfuls of beans and some bites of cooked beats with just a little bit of tea, I was full really quick but not nauseous. I did take a nap this morning as I was very tired but I did not sleep all day like I did on day two. I am just now starting to burp again but I started taking prilosec to help with the burping, hoping to see an improvement. I will say that since I weighed Monday morning til this morning I have lost 5 lbs. My starting weight is 243 lbs, I am 5'6" tall and 48 yrs old. I have Grave's disease which ended up with now no thyroid and 3 yrs of trying to get my medication regulated which caused me to put on weight that I have previously worked hard to lose, weight has always been an issue for me but now, nothing I tried before this helped. I have since developed high blood pressure as well and recently after years of other treatments had back surgery in March of this year. My weight was a contributing factor for both of these health issues. I am glad my Dr chose Saxenda and that my insurance is covering it for me (NCBCBS). I will deal with the side effects but I was just wondering how you were able to deal with these same issues. Thanks in NC
