My husband and I have been on Byetta for about 2 weeks.  Andy drank 2 beers yesterday about 1 hour after taking his Rx and has suffered indigestion since then.  We were just wondering if anyone else has had similar symptoms?  Other than that, he has only had very mild gas associated with Byetta.

The manufacturers of Byetta, the Mayo Clinic and a bunch of other peeps recommend that you not drink alcohol while using byetta because of possible low blood sugar episodes. If you are taking other diabetic medications as well as the byetta you may cause liver problems since alcohol, medications and blood glucose are all handled by the liver. I just wanted to post this for anyone who is unclear about alcohol choices. I know we all cheat once in a while but it isn't recommended because of all the additional problems it brings to the table. Just being the local party pooper here. devil
