... I've had occasional nausea and lightheadedness along with decreased appetite. I do not take anything else for my diabetes. My sugars were over 300 in the AM's, now I'm running about 150-180. I have not changed my diet... Yet... and I need to lose 100#. I've tried Victoza, stopped that due to extreme migraines. I was put on byuredon ... like stabbing myself with a huge dull needle with a syringe that looked like a torpedo. What a joke, and I'm a nurse! So far the jury's out on trulicity. But the side effects sound awful, and the sooner I can lose some weight and manage my diet the sooner I can get off these drugs. I just wish they had a patch for sugar cravings the way they have a patch for nicotine abuse. Sugar is an addiction and it's in just about everything! Just on here looking to see what others have experienced and share thoughts.
I have been on trulicity 1.5 for 2 months now. I love it. Yes I do have the burp thing and gas thing but after being up a few hours in the morning that goes away. The side effects are not bad enough to make me stop this medication. I was on victoza for 4 years and that was a nightmare.
I've been on it for 2 months. Some of the side affects went away for me however the belching and distain for food sadly stayed with me. I didn't have flatulance but I had the sour stomach and severe vomiting and a super fun bout of diarrhea for a few days just to top it all off so you actually seem kind of lucky in my eyes. LOL it gets less and less noticeable the longer u take it so just hang in there!
