Victoza Injection

victoza weight loss

Victoza is a medication that is typically used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, but is also associated with weight loss benefits because of its ability to boost insulin production in the body and lower blood sugar levels. Most people who take Victoza claim that it acts effectively as an appetite suppressant, which makes it easier to follow a lower-calorie diet leading to weight loss. The weight loss effects of Victoza appear to diminish over time so it is not a reliable, long-term dieting aid.

Using Victoza isn’t for everyone, but a doctor can help you to decide whether or not it is appropriate for helping you to get your own weight into a healthy range. Let your doctor know if you have any forms of stomach issue that could cause digestion to be slow, or if you have kidney or liver disease, if you have hypertension (elevated blood pressure), high triglycerides, or if you have every been an alcoholic, have suffered from pancreatitis or gallstones. This may not be right for you if you have a family or personal history of medullary thyroid cancer, if you have tumors in your glands, if you have type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes, or if you are in a diabetic ketoacidosis state.

If you want to lose weight by taking Victoza, then it is important that you don’t simply rely on the drug by itself. Using this medication typically involves a prescribed diet and exercise schedule, as well.

Victoza comes in the form of a pre-filled injection pen. It is not a weight loss pill. In order to use it properly, discuss the various forms of available needles with your pharmacist, who can help you to make the right choice for your needs and your type of pen. To use this medication, it must be injected under the skin. Your doctor and pharmacist will show you the best places on your body for you to make the injections. Unless you completely understand how to properly give an injection and dispose of the pens and needles, do not give yourself the injections. Ask your doctor or pharmacist questions if you are uncertain as to how to inject the medication properly.

The Victoza injection is generally given one time every day. This may be changed by the doctor depending on what results you need. Your dose may also need to be changed in the case of an infection or fever, if you have another illness, if you have a medical emergency, or if you undergo surgery or another medical procedure.

This medication can be taken at any time of the day, regardless of whether or not you have eaten a meal. It should not be used if it changes in color of if you can see particles floating around in it. If this occurs, contact your doctor to have a new prescription written.
