    I am switching from Victoza to Byetta and curious if anyone has done this. I think I know the answer to this, but, Byetta starts you with 5 cc for first month, and wonder has anyone started with 10 cc right off the bat. Hopefully, someone is able to get back to my question today. Thanks!!!

    Hello.

    That may be a question best asked of your doctor and/or pharmacist.

    I have a question for you - why are you switching? I have been on Victoza for about a month and it is helping, but I am still having some side affects. Does Byetta have fewer side affects?

    I am not on either but why would you switch to Byetta when it's been reported to cause Pancreatic Cancer.


    Why would your doctor switch you to this?
