I've tried one month w/ Victoza as instructed by the pharmacist. He recommended keeping the unopened pen in the fridge and that once the pen was opened it could remain at room temperature for 30 days. I found that after 2 weeks the appetite suppression and weightloss reduced. While starting my 2nd pen I've kept the opened one in the fridge. So far the appetite suppression and weightloss seems to be maintained. Has anyone else experienced this?
I maintain a low carb diet (approx 50g/day) and exercise 2-3 times a week. I am using Victoza for Pre-Diabetes - Insulin Resistance. Since starting on 11/16/2010 w/ a starting weight of 201lbs, I have lost 16lbs and am now at 185lbs.
