I am 25, 326lb and 5.8". Fasting glucouse is ok but im extremely overweight with severe obstructive sleep apnea and pcos. I've been on victoza for about 3 days and IM constantly reading reviews and medical facts about it. Not many people seem to like the drug and it has some very harsh side effects even death. IM so scared. I get sharp almost like hunger pains in the top of my stomach... i feel really anxious all the time. I am using this alongside metformin 500mg 1x. Plz give Me onsite on just how effective victoza is.
Hi, i am not personally aware of the success rates of taking Victoza, but i wanted to write to give you the link to the support group on this site, click on the link... https://www.drugs.com/answers/support-group/victoza/

I hope it works for you and your anxiety levels reduce! I'm sorry i can't be of much help. Hopefully someone will come along who has experience with Victoza...
I'm taking it combined with metformin as well. I think it works differently for every one, but for most folks the side effects go away after a few weeks. As far as effectiveness, it's been working for me. I've lost weight and my a1c has gone down. If you're still feeling sharp pains in your stomach, check in with your Dr. Good luck, hope it works for you!
