I was looking for some info' date='also. My doctor discussed it with me today as an alternative. She was saying that it helps with lowering appetite and helps to lose weight.

I was hoping someone with experience using it would post.[/quote']

 

 

I have been using Victoza for almost 2 weeks. Started at the .6 dose for one week and now on 1.2 dose. Last week was fine, no nausea, but NO APPETITE!! This week i have experienced heartburn, but hoping it wont last. I have lost 7 lbs. so far. I get full really fast.

 

Before Victoza I would exercise 5 x week and restrict my calories and would only lose a pound every few weeks or so. My BS is a little lower but not drastically. My A1C is generally about 7 but was almost 8 the last time. Which was surprising because of my diet and exercise. I will try this dose for a while until I see my Dr. again. Hope I dont have to go to 1.8 dose. I currently take glyburide/metformin 2.5/500 twice a day.

 

I would recommend you try it if you have trouble losing weight.
