Victoza - I accidentally injected before I cleared the air. Is this going to have any effect?

Perhaps you should call emergency please. Where did you inject it?

General considerations of injecting Victoza include the following:

This diabetes medication comes in injectable form. It is injected just under the skin (subcutaneously) of the abdomen (stomach), thigh, or upper arm once daily.

Unlike many other injectable diabetes medications, one can change the injection site and the specific injection time without adjusting the dose. However, it is best to try to stick with one certain time of the day to take this medication in order to be somewhat consistent.

Victoza comes in prefilled pens. One wouldl need to buy pen needles and one would need a separate prescription for pen needles in order to use the pen. Use a new needle each time to inject this medication.

Do not inject this medicine into a vein or a muscle. It should be injected just under the skin.

Please do take care in future, best wishes!
