Susan (2 years ago):
I had a problem with Victoria which caused me a couple of days in the hospital with a full cardiac work up. What happened was a slowing of the heart rate to about 40. I was on medicine for blood pressure. Atenolol & lotensin HCTZ. The culprit was felt to be the atenolol interaction. I stopped the Victoria no further problems. Female 54 type 2 diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol. No cardiac problems found with the work up.

I'm female, 64 and took Victoza for a few weeks. It should be removed from the market...now, I hear they are extending it to weight loss.
It has damaged my thyroid, or something, because I have had body temperature fluctuates and is uncontrollable. I don’t get good rest any more, and don’t sleep most every night. I suffer severe body temperature rate high/low around the clock. I can’t believe with all these side effects and the proof it causes cancer, the FDA would allow this drug to market…I highly recommend against it. My problem started with Victoza and has continued even though I’m no longer taking the drug. Over two months now. I believe this condition is from thyroid damage from the medication. I take hormone replacement and it does no good at all.

My mom is 64 years old. She has Parkinsons, diabetes and most recently had a heart attack. She had her heart attack right after she started using Victoza. I'm not saying this gave her the heart attack as obviously she has multiple ailments, one of which diabetes. She has since had sivere panic attacks. She has been hospitalized at least 10 times since her heart attack. She is now taking Ativan and Xanax just to get through the day. Her cardiologist recommended she see a therapist and start taking some anti-depressants. It has been horrible to say the least. We are at the beginning of a long road but I know we will get through it. I want my mom back. If there is anyone out there that has had any of these issues, please write me and share your thought. None of this happened until my mom started using Victoza. The hospital had no idea what it even was.

Obviously your start up dose was too strong. You could have halved the dose.

Since going on this medication I can't sleep. I have sleep apnea and use a CPAP machine. I have also noticed since going on this medication, that I have a shortness of breath. This is really making it difficult to use the CPAP.
