My mother is 56 yr old, 117kg is her wght, she is diabetic type 2, is taking victoza (liraglutide) injection for weight loss and lanctus for diabts. R these meds safe?
Use them w caution: All meds have risks involved. For these they need to be taken at seperate times to avoid drop in sugar. Victoza (liraglutide) can slow emptying of stomach & affect absorbtion of meds taken orally. The bigger issue is weight reduction. Type 2 dm doesn't have to be a life long disease. Get her to a dr that practices wt mgmt med. Get the wt down and the dose of Insulin can come down=less req insulin=easier wt loss. Read more

Victoza (liraglutide): Every patient is different. You might not even get any side effects. Read more
Yes and no: Having the two drug together is not a problem. They can even be mixed together. Injecting in one spot too much is sometimes a problem. It can lead to bruising and lipodystrophy. So rotate the injection sites around. Read more

Depends: Many people may experience full effect of victoza 2-3 weeks after continued use. However, if the dose is too low or if your blood sugars remain elevated despite its continued use, a change in dose or in medication regimen may be warranted. Would recommend you consult with your doctor if blood sugars are not well controlled after taking the medication. Read more

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
Adjust dose: The dose of victoza (liraglutide) should be slowly increased from the starting dose as tolerated (1.2 up to 1.8 mg/day). It starts working the first dose and is maximally effective in less than a week. Read more
Up titration: Hi. With the standard up titration of the Victoza (liraglutide) dose, you'll be at max dose (1.8 mg/day) at the beginning of the 3rd week...later if you do a slower titration. Once you're stably at the 1.8 mg dose, the effect is very rapid. However, due to progressive and ongoing weigh loss, "peak" effect may occur further down the road. Eat healthily and exercise regularly! Good luck, and be well controlled! Read more
Victoza (liraglutide): Nausea is the main side effect, but many people do not have a problem with this. If you tolerated the 0.6 dose, you may be able to just double the dose without any problem. If you experience some nausea, you may want to do every other day 0.6/1.2 for a while until the nausea goes away. Read more

Great drug: Hi. You have a very contemporary & up to date GP! Liraglutide is an excellent drug in the GLP-1 agonist class. It is approved only for type 2 diabetes but also has been shown to be very helpful in type 1. It stimulates insulin release in response to high BG; it suppresses glucagon (VERY beneficial); it tells your brain you're full, so you don't eat as much; and it slows absorption of food from gut Read more
