... any meal-- stomach pain worse in the morning. My doctor is absolutely no help at all! So I finally just went back down to the starting dose and my pain and nausea have suddenly stopped. Can now eat something more at meals without getting sick. Has anyone tried this approach? Blood readings are good and my weight is down 12 pounds
Some of the common side effects of taking Victoza are:
Constipation; decreased appetite; diarrhea; dizziness; headache; nausea; pain, swelling, or redness at the injection site; sinus inflammation; sore throat; upset stomach; vomiting. Weight loss could be due to the decrease in appetite.
It is surprising that your system could not get used to the med., would recommend that you try & seek an second opinion & request your doc to change a med which is perhaps more suitable to your system, take care, be well & safe!
I have had a lot of nausea and don't want to eat hardly anything ..I have lost 7 lbs bs are better than ever. Severe stomach pain I don't know if its the med that's the only thing I can relate it to have had some acid reflux as well... Just want to feel normal!!! It's been about 6 weeks Dr did just have me go back down to 1.2 I was at 1.8!!!
I don't know my weight loss anf don't care. This is the worst drug I ever had and I take 14. I don't know how it got pass the advisory board and then the FDA!!! From the first injection of .6 i was sick feeling neausous. After a week as instructed I doubled the dose which was 3 days ago. OMG this morning the poorest stool ever in my life all over the bathroom floor and threw up in a trash can. Never again will I take this drug! It should be withdrawn from the market!!!
