Yes: Hi. Victoza (liraglutide) is one of the best type 2 drugs available presently, but it does have nausea (which can be intermittent) as a fairly common side effect. The nausea generally gets better the longer duration you're on the drug. Some people get burping, but I haven't heard of them smelling like eggs. If nausea remains a problem, dial the dose back and titrate up more slowly. Good luck!

Citrus/Ginger: Remedies other than traditional medicines include foods, pressure points and some vitamins. Ginger has been shown to aid in the relief of nausea as has both the taste and aroma of citrus fruits. Wrist bands used for sea sickness and accupuncture have also provided relief for some. Last, 25 mg of vitamin B6 taken 3-4 times a day may help with nausea and vomiting as well.

adding 1/2 or 1 tab of doxylamine (sold OTC as Unisom) to the B6 is safe and effective, too

For quick nausea relief is it better to take a promethazine suppository than the pill?

Yes: The suppository may be better adsorbed than the oral form, since the pill can again be thrown up immediately after ingestion. Pressing on the inner wrist acupuncture point master of the heart 6 can also provide almost instant relief from nausea related to morning sickness.

See an allergist: You may be able to get the flu shot, but i would see an allergist first and not get this at a "minute clinic, " etc. See: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/flu-vaccine-egg-allergy/an02033/.
