Common Questions and Answers about Byetta needles

byetta

Has anyone had clinical results in using Victoza? Do you use pen needles with this product. Is it used like Byetta before meals.? If so, why is it given before meals? Do you skip a dose, if you have already eaten?
Yes I would say the jury have retired on this one, what worries me more is that for about the last 3 weeks my partner has had pins and needles in his left arm and some pain. Should he stop these drugs now and look for an alternative, or am I being carried away by the hype. Sorry I haven't looked through the site to see if this has come up before.
When Loretta was taking Byetta twice a day, she put her used needles in a shaprs container for a while, but after the first one filled up, she realized that it could cost us a pretty tidy sum just for the containers. Instead, she took an empty bottle from a liquid laundry product, had me write "sharps" all over it with a Sharpie (appropriate, no?), and then she used that for the rest of her days.
I have tried other medications such as Actos and Januvia but they did not make that big a difference. I tried the Byetta as well with the same results. So I am not afraid of needles or injections. My question would be which insulin pens would be my best choice? I think a long acting such as Lantus and I might need a rapid acting one for meals? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am going to see the nurse practioner today in my doctor's office.
I would just like to know if anyone has lost weight or has had any side effects while taking this medication. I was on Byetta but the nausea never stopped and I felt bad all of the time. I took my first dose this morning of Victoza and so far there has been no nausea--I just hope it lasts. Any comments on this medication would greatly be appreciated.

I'm going to an endo dr. and my blood works shows that my c-reactive protein, cardiac blood test results was extremely high.... love is <1.00 , average is 1.00 -3.00 and high is >3.00. MY results is 37.90. it says i'm at a relative risk for future cardiovascular event. The dr.
I was biking 2+ hours/day and eating nothing but meat, cheese, and peanut butter (and regretting the carbs in those) when I finally approached my doctor. He suggested that lizard-spit stuff, Byetta, but told me that he couldn't get it past my insurance unless I sat down with a diabetes nurse educator first. She took one look at me and ordered the correct blood tests. I was re-diagnosed as a Type 1 and on insulin the very next day, eating bread and potatoes again a few days later.
