Hi guys. I was wondering if any of you that take Victozapen for type 2 have side effects if so what are they. I have suffered sore throat sinus trouble cold and flu symptoms since October I blamed flu jab which I got in October but it can't be that after all this time it must be the Victoza.

I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me

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. I wish ns companies would not mess with what meds peoe can take.
I adapted to bydureon very well, maybe because I'd been using Victoza for 4 months. I found I had less side effects, no more nasty belchies, much less gas. I was about 2 weeks in before things… read more
