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.

From this study (2 weeks ago):
When get up and walk into kitchen etc but especially when climbing house stairs, standing from bending in fridge, walking shortest distance. ECG normal. NOT Asthmatic. Really scared now as GP no help and under Neurologist on 520-560mg daily as anything below leaves me bedridden or hospitalised with heads. Nothing else works. Awaiting implant surgery.

- Celebrex and taste loss
Following foot surgery, I have taken Celebrex for most of the last 4 months. I can no longer taste or smell. I just started a Z pack for a sinus problem and am hoping that will clear any infection that could be contributing to this loss. I have also stopped taking Celebrex in the meantime.
- Loss of taste & recovery
Condition appeared upon use of Simvastatin. Mostly corrected by liberal use of MSG.
