SadSon (11 months ago):

Hello, My mother was diagnosed with stage 3 pancreatic cancer which spread to her liver. She was on Victoza for close to a year. There is no history of any kind of cancer in our family, however diabetes is another story. She was given this medication to help lose weight and to help with her type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, she passed away only two months after being diagnosed. She was only 48 and had so much more life to live. It makes me sick to constantly see commercials for this horrible drug. I urge anyone who is or is considering taking this medication to think twice. The drug companies do not care about people, only money. I love my mom more than words can say and she has been taken from me all so Novo Nordisk can make their billions. Please, heed my warnings. It is not worth the risk.

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
