I only took Victoza for about 6 days and my sugars dropped so low it sent me to the ER. My doctor prescribed for more weight loss when my A1C was already at 6.6. I was already taking 1000 metformin x2 a day. My sugars are still all over from stopping 3 days ago and my head splitting. Is that normal?
To be honest, nothing about your case seems normal. I quit Victoza for a month and half because my insurance company wouldn't pay for it but had no symptoms at all. My blood sugars and pressure went back to where they were before I took the drug but nothing else
Your dose was .6 which shouldn't do much of anything- its not a theraputic dose. Its used to let your body get used to the drug but doesn't have much effect
Your blood sugar of 6.6 is high enough to be considered diabetic. The usual treatment goal is under 7 but a normal A1C is about 4 to 5
Victoza rarely causes low blood sugar unless your also taking a sulfanylurea like Glipizide.
All that said, Victoza didn't work for you so you should stop it. The headaches are not normal. You should have no withdrawal symptoms especially since you took a very low dose for a very short time
