My physician may want me to take this but I can not even afford this with insurance benefits
When my doctor prescribed this medication to me she gave me a card for a discount to take to the pharmacy with me that is good for the first 6 months that I am on victoza. I had to call a phone number listed on the card to get it activated but it even works with my insurance copay. Thank goodness or else I wouldn't be able to take it.
The bad news: Victoza is under patent and patent medicines cost a lot.
The good news: Patents eventually expire and the price drops through the floor
Byetta is a related drug. Its not as good because you have to use it twice a day and the side effects are different (Victoza is such a wonderful drug for me, I'd take it for the weight loss and lower blood pressure alone) but it goes generic on October 15. Something to consider if your worried about costs
