What Kind Of Medication Is Everyone Taking ?

I've been on so many diabetic medications . Nothing is truly working for me
Metformin - did nothing for A1C

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. 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

Anyone On Victoza?

Anyone On Victoza?

What are your pros and cons? Just started it last week - I've gotten off of insulin (Basaglar) and am now taking 1.2 of Victoza and 1000mg of Metformnin 2x daily.

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

I take Victoza. I also take Lantus at night. The only thing besides losing weight woth the Victoza is Nausea or throwing up. Otherwise it works great.
