I have trouble loosing weight and was wanting to know if this will be for others other than diabetics for weight loss
I doubt that an MD would go for it. I've been on Vitoza for 9 months and have little weight loss.
Victoza is only FDA approved to treat Type 2 diabetes. It is not approved to for weight loss.
Novo Nordisk has a drug trial to effect weight loss in non-diabetics. I don't know if it is open. NIH has a drug trial site that might work out for you.
My dr prescribed Victoza for weight loss because I'm about 60 lbs over and have had trouble losing weight with diet and exercise. I'm not diabetic. I'd never heard of this drug and he gave me a sample. I've been on for about a month now and have lost about 5 lbs. I have to force myself to eat sometimes but I still have an appetite when I do eat. Definitely helps with the overeating. My sample is about to finish, Im a little scared to see how much it costs.
