    I've been taking Victoza for about 6 months. Have lost weight (>10 lbs.), but have very impaired taste and smell. I think this side-effect should be addressed, especially because it could very well be what leads people to believe they are losing weight as a result of the drug.

    A month after my last post, my loss of smell and taste has evolved into a very bad taste in my mouth as well as bad smell. It is very nauseating, so I have stopped the victoza as it has become intolerable.
