Victoza

I've been on Victoza for a few months now and wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced what i have. Weight gain, after losing around 10 pounds when I first went on the drug. Now I'm putting the weight I lost plus more. Also my stomach feels swollen all the time. I'm pre-diabetic and my AIC is good. Anyone else experienced this?

I'm sorry, but I can't answer your question about Victoza, but I do have a question for you. Your doctor put you on Victoza for prediabetes? I have never heard of that, as that drug is not even the first line of treatment for full blown diabetes. Didn't he/she recommend Metformin? Metformin has been found to delay....or even prevent....diabetes, as well as studies showing that it can be protective from many types of cancer. Also, may I ask what your A1c is?

Hawkins...I agree with Ronnie. If your A1C is good...why would you need medication? You could control this through diet alone. I would so some research and then ask my doctor. Sometimes I feel Dr.s prescribe medication too freely these days.
