Most likely, green coffee is not well regulated nor well studied, so it may contain uncertain amounts of listed ingredients, plus various amounts of unlisted ingredients. One cannot be sure of its effects. ...Read more

Have too take 0.6 victoza (liraglutide) for one week, after that have to start 1.2, does anyone have a formula on how I should do it!

Liraglutide (Victoza (liraglutide): It is not clear what you mean by formula. Detailed step by step instructions are on the company web site (http://www. Victoza. Com/index. Aspx). The "pen" allows you to dial up different doses. It is taken once per day. ...Read more

Is it better to take 1.2 of Victoza (liraglutide) once a day or 0.6 twice a day?

Not studied: Hi. That hasn't been studied (or at least I haven't seen any data). So no one can say. Tolerability is an unfortunate issue with liraglutide, which is an outstanding drug. If you tolerate 0.6 mg twice daily better than 1.2 once daily, I'd say go for the 0.6 mg twice daily. Either that, or do 0.9 mg (5 clicks up from 0.6 mg) once daily, and do a SLOW upward titration. Good luck! ...Read more

No soda!: Hi. Lifestyle is what made you diabetic! Please stop the soda! As you know, you're using an intermediate dose of Victoza (liraglutide). I won't bother asking why you're using 0.9 mg...that's between you and your doc. Victoza (liraglutide) works when you do anything. Will it keep your sugar normal? That's a separate question, and you're giving it an uphill battle drinking that trash. Living healthy helps everything. ...Read more

When I take 0. 6 of victoza, (liraglutide)I get a pressure under my jaw line where my glands are, is that normal.

Liraglutide: I'm assuming your endocrinologist prescribed this for you. It is a very potent product. My concern is that the jaw pain is an equivalent indicating hypoglycemia or even cardiac distress. Please please make sure you tell your primary or endo doctor about this. I may be wrong...but you don't want to take a chance with this sort of thing. ...Read more

I forgot my am dose of victoza (liraglutide) and will be taking my bedtime dose of lantus within the hour. Should I skip the Victoza (liraglutide) until tomorrow morning or take?

Resume your usual regimen tomorrow morning and check your blood sugar at the usual time. If it's very elevated contact your physician or diabetologist for instructions. ...Read more
