I came from Byetta so I was used to having to watch when I could take the pen. I was excited about not having to worry but I did as my physician suggested that it did not matter. Frankly I feel it does. If you are ready to have your morning meal, For me best to take AM before the meal. Less risk of nausea if on empty stomach before injection.

My doctor has me taking it first thing in the morning which i believe is best if you understand the way Victoza works. As far as weight loss it comes in time and like any weight loss drug you also must change your diet and get exercise. Do this and i guarantee you will loose weight.
