  • Victoza and liver cancer (cholangiocarcinoma)
    My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer after taking Victoza for several years. The doctor discontinued the Victoza when the cancer was diagnosed but he actually started feeling better after he stopped it until the cancer started progressing. Since cholangiocarcinoma nd pancreatic cancer are similar, is there a link between Victoza and cholangiocarcinoma?
  • Victoza and breast cancer
    I took victoza for about 1 year. I have no history of breast cancer 9 my family.
  • Hiccups with victoza in type ii diabetic patient
    developed 48 hours of hiccups immediately after increasing dose of Victoza from 0.6 to 1.2mg and they resolved after discontinuation of drug for 48 hours

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I am currently experiencing constant muscle contractions in my abdomen and jerking movements in my neck and midsection. My neck will pull back by itself... Or while I'm standing I'll involuntarily bend over. I'm also having balance issues. I feel very unstable walking and am experiencing some tremors.

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • My migraines are with aura (classic) including vision changes, hemiplegic (numb arm, face, mouth, throat) and as part of the aura, inability to remember some words (presents like a stroke). While on victoza, I had three migraines in one week, a lifetime anomaly that has not repeated since quitting the drug. I usually will get at most 2 a year, and often go years without one, but it appears victoza sets off a major attack.
