Victoza made me ill.
My GP had me on a trial of the injectable diabetes medication Victoza. I was using the starting dose of 0.6 mg/day. With the doc's consent, I went to 1.2 mg this morning. One hour later I was nauseous and vomiting. I still cannot keep anything down. I called my doc and reported the reaction; and we have d.c.'ed the med. Still, I wonder how long it will be to work this stuff out of my system.

RE: Victoza made me ill.
That seems like a big jump in dosage but I don't know how long you have been trialing victoza. Feel better fast.

It also decreases glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner and delays gastric emptying. Unlike endogenous GLP-1, liraglutide is stable against metabolic degradation by peptidases, with a plasma half-life of 13 hours.

Well, it is not the Victoza. I still cannot keep a sip of water down.
