OK...I have been on byetta 5mcg 2x per day for 9 days...when I go to eat, the thought of food makes me ill, or i have absolutely no appetite. Like this morning, we went for breakfast, and i sent it away the minute I got it...just looking it made me sick...i know I have to eat...and i do but it is hard!!!

I adjusted your title so more byetta users can find it.

Actually I posted something very similar to this. I've been on byetta 5 mcg for almost a month. I've lost 20 lbs and can't eat anything and what I do eat I throw up usually. I don't know what to tell you but I'll be checking in on this thread. Hopefully someone will know something. Maybe Warren, the biggest Byetta advocate around, will know something.

Hi Lex and Vegas. I have had the same problem when I first started using Byetta. Felt like morning-noon & night sickness! The doc gave me phenergan which helped but also made me very sleepy. Pepcid AC helped alot too. This stopped after about 3 weeks....just bam...it was gone! When I went up to the 10 I had a few days of ickiness too, but nothing too bad. I found that if I ate immediately after taking the shot it didnt get as bad. Even if it was just a few almonds or crackers. Hang in there!! It is SO worth it. My numbers are the best ever! I have been using Byetta for about 3 months now and have lost over 20 lbs. Still have about 40 to go, but this is the best I have felt in 2 years!
I love this forum....I am new here and it is so wonderful to talk to people who are going through the same stuff!! Ya'll take care and good luck!!

I don't take Byetta, was thinking about it, but when I did a search on it and it took me to a site where 100s of people posted about the side effects from Byetta I decided not to take it.  But, a WHOLE LOT of people have the same side effects as you are having so you are not alone. 

The losing weight sounded enticing to me but I couldn't even handle 1 week of sickness when I was pregnant with my son so I didn't think I could handle months and months of it.  Hope it works for you though.
