Bydureon...intense Lightheadedness!!

I'm Going From Victoza To Bydureon, Any Advice?

I'm Going From Victoza To Bydureon, Any Advice?

My insurance has decided to make Victoza non-formulary so I'm having to switch to Bydureon. Is anyone using this? I've only been on Victoza for 5 mos and was doing pretty good with it, tho my morning nos have increased slightly. I've been able to decrease Lantus to just 6 units at bedtime and eliminate Novalog altogether. Did not lose any weight but still liked this med.

Bydureon, Anyone On It Or Ever Try It?

Bydureon, Anyone On It Or Ever Try It?

My doctor wants me to start taking Bydureon injections. I haven’t read or heard too many good things from other people who have tried it and the side effects really worry me. Anyone on here currently or previously taken this medication? If so, what was your experience and did it help your diabetes?

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

Yes, it was ok for me but my insurance didn’t cover it so my doctor put me on something else.

Has Anyone Tried Berberine To Control Their Diabetes? If So How Did It Work And Was Their Side Effects?.

I am trying to find an alternative to prescription drugs ( Metformin) to control my blood sugar. Any suggestions?

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

I can’t take it either.. I’m also in kidney failure, so I can’t take most of the other pills either. I’ve never heard of berberine, so I can’t say anything for or against it!!!
