I have been on Byetta for 3 months and I LOVE it!
I lost a little over 30 LBS and hope to loose another 20-25 and I'll be back to normal.
I had no idea how bad I was feeling until I started the injections. I feel great, my sugars are perfect and I have a lot of energy. Quality of life is something you can't replace.
The belching went away after 6 weeks and the nausea, while it could be pretty bad at times- I learned I had to eat less than half of my normal intake, and eat my food 30 minutes or so after the injection.
No other real issue except a little constipation which went away along with the nausea. I have been on the 10 MG pen for over 2 months and I am so grateful for this little pen.
One thing I did find disturbing was that it took 2 doctors and a lot of convincing to get them to put me on Byetta.
3 Doctors said I was a candidate, but that they don't prescribe it as they get a lot of grief from the insurance company- and none of them even knew my insurance- It was just the way things are.
I hope this isn't true- a lot of people will end up suffering needlessly.
