(I moved this post from the bottom of another thread so you byetta peeps will see it.)

Hello, I have been taking Byetta for about 2 weeks now. The nausea has gone........but boy oh boy........diarrhea and bloating like I've never experienced in my life. I've read that some of you suggest not mixing certain foods like protein and carbs and no grease or oils. Is this right? My appetite has disappeared. I have to force myself to eat something an hour after I take the Byetta. Haven't weighed myself but feel lighter. Any tips you might have on stopping this incredible diarrhea would be appreciated.

Sorry you're feeling so bad... Maybe you could call your doc and let them know you are having a hard time with the med. Maybe your doctor can prescribe something different.

Hope you feel better soon!
