About Victoza 

Victoza is considered a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, which functions by improving blood glucose control, as well as insulin levels in the body. Like any glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, this medication can only be used for type 2 diabetes. It is ineffective against type 1 diabetes because it will not inject actual insulin into the body.

Some conditions that Victoza is known to treat include type 2 diabetes, including cases where the patient has a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Victoza is available only by prescription. This drug is currently not available in any generic forms.

Victoza may be prescribed as an injection. The medication is provided in the form of a compact medical device that has a similar appearance to a pen. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage that you are prescribed.

It is important to follow the doctor's instructions carefully. This will ensure the medicine helps to control blood sugar effectively. Proper use of Victoza as part of the medication treatment plan also reduces the risk of low blood sugar, which can result in serious side-effects. Patients should also learn how to discard medical supplies safely when they use Victoza to help lower high blood sugar levels. This may include using a local waste disposal company to assist in this process. Full preparation and usage instructions can be found in the container that comes with the medication, which further helps the patient understand how they should effectively use the medicine.

Victoza uses

There is only a single FDA-approved use for Victoza, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. Your online medical professional may prescribe it for any of the following common reasons. It’s also possible that your health care provider may prescribe it for other reasons not listed here. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • Type 2 diabetes mellitus

    The FDA has approved the use of Victoza among patients who have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. This medication is also an appropriate choice for type 2 diabetes patients who have heart disease risks. The medication has been developed to provide a significant reduction in the risk of strokes and heart attacks. These are common risks associated with the use of certain diabetes medications.

    It is important to note that prescription medication does not work alone. The patient will obtain a complete treatment plan to help with blood sugar control. This type of plan can also prevent these prescription drugs from causing low blood sugar. In addition to the use of this medication, the patient is also advised to follow a healthy diet and an exercise plan. The three procedures work together to help with blood sugar control. By following these instructions, blood glucose levels may improve and the patient reduces their own risk of very serious side effects.

Victoza side effects

  • The side effects associated with taking Victoza are typically relatively mild. Most Victoza side effects are associated with the digestive system. Victoza has some common side effects. They may include:

    • Nausea

    • Vomiting

    • Abdominal pain

    • Diarrhea

    • Constipation

    • Tiredness

    • Dizziness

    • Headaches

    A large number of individuals experience nausea as a side-effect when they start to use Victoza for the first time. This common side-effect generally only lasts for a short while.

    Other side effects, which are less common but might be more severe, could include:

    • Kidney Problems: There are some rare cases where patients develop kidney problems when they use Victoza to assist in managing their blood sugar. Potential signs of kidney problems include difficulty urinating or pain during urination. Swelling may also develop in the ankles and feet. When you have problems with your kidneys, you may also feel tired and there is a risk that you may also experience shortness of breath.

    • Pancreatitis: Some reports have also associated Victoza with pancreatitis. If this happens, you may require insulin treatment to help increase insulin levels in the blood. People who treat diabetes with Victoza should look out for severe pain that affects the upper abdomen. The pain may spread toward the back. Pancreatitis may also cause an increase in heart rate or cause nausea.

    • Hypoglycemia: Sometimes, blood sugar levels decline too much. This can cause serious low blood sugar. In this case, the patient is at risk of experiencing confusion, a rapid heart rate, slurred speech, faster breathing, and fainting. Convulsions can sometimes also occur with severe low blood sugar. This is why patients should educate themselves on the signs of low blood sugar and ensure they have a way to treat it.

    • Thyroid Tumors: Some reports have associated the use of Victoza to an increased risk of thyroid tumors too. The medullary thyroid carcinoma may appear as a lump in the patient's neck. The patient may find it hard to swallow and have a hoarse voice. Shortness of breath can also occur when Thyroid cancer develops as a complication.

    You should call your doctor if you notice any of these side effects, or if you develop any other new or concerning symptoms. Victoza is generally not used in the treatment of children, as these cases are usually associated with type 1 diabetes. This is not a type 1 diabetes medication.
