Nausea is a very common side effect and often reason for patients to stop treatment.
From experience, they probably will. I started with .6 about a month ago. After a week went to 1.2 and yesterday started 1.8. The first 2 or 3 days after starting .6 and 1.2 I had migraines and nausea, some diarrhea (2 bouts of throwing up sensations after starting 1.2). I went to 1.8 yesterday and today feel REALLY nauseas and have bad agita (I had soup for lunch 9 hrs ago and I still feel like it's repeating on me). I'm going to try and get through the next few days. Before my numbers were in the 170s and now I'm 90-110.
Yes. The side effects do eventually stop or subside quite a bit but the weight loss stops to.
I titrated up to the 1.8 dose 2 weeks ago and still have the side effect of GERD and constipation. I'm hoping both improve with time. If not, I'm not sure I'll continue the Victoza. I hate feeling like this.
