I am a 61 year old woman. I have been using Victoza for approximately one year. I got sick in January with stomach pain and in June. I thought I just had the flu. The last two months however have been pure hell. I have had, nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, I have been so ill I've to the ER. I have been out of it to the point that I am tired, suffer pain in my back, legs. One day I was so tired I forgot to inject. I felt ok the next day I injected and was horribly sick the next day. Now I'm off the Victoza and I'm not sick. I think this medicine is really bad
