In brief: Not much different

Some minor differences but all in all, they are fine.
Once/week vs. Once/day. The main thing is Bydureon (exenatide) takes 6-10 weeks to reach maximum strength so your numbers might be higher at the beginning. If you ride it out, you will be ok in 8 weeks. I use the two interchangeably depending on insurance coverage.
