Welcome to the site vctx2. If you actually have hives, victoza is giving you an allergic reaction, & you should discuss this with your doctor as soon as possible. Are you sure it's hives & not a skin rash? I am going to give you a link to read about the possible side effects, but DO NOT stop your medication until you have spoken with a doctor. Don't want your glucose to skyrocket. A skin rash around the injection site is a less serious side effect , but still a side effect, and you never know when it could become more serious like swelling in your throat causing you to stop breathing. Please read the link below & talk to your doctor ASAP...
