Have been on for 2 1/2 weeks. Female and 55 years old. Just increased dose 3 days ago. I am very tired but thought just do to all the activity in last month but now not sure. Lost 4 pounds in about 12 days and food isn't appealing, I have to force myself to eat and only certain things sound good. Hoping side effects wear off but hope my cravings stay controlled like right now. Not craving sugars or starch.

Male, 60 years old. Type 2 for 6 plus years and getting worse. On metformin. BP high but stabilized and I have not found any meds I can take that will bring BP down. Taking asprin also.
Blood sugar is now at 200.
Started taking Victoza 18 days ago. Blood Sugar is now about 110 and dropping. Weight has dropped 15 lbs. Never hungry but I do eat 2x a day but only a little.
Reaction: Almost immediately fatigue and tired. I want to sleep all the time. Muscles don't want to work. But I can handle this if I can get my weight down and hopefully get off my diabetes meds. Most foods make me want to puke.
No other symptoms so I guess I am lucky.

Female, 62. Have been on Victoza for about a month. My A1c had dropped from 9.9 to 7.9. I am sleepy and lethargic all the time. I just thought of checking to see if anyone else was feeling this way and am surprised that others have reported this. Are people reporting this to their doctors?
