Re: Medications to help PCOS
Thanks! I have been taking the Victoza for almost a week now. The Dr had started me out on the 0.6mg dose, and the first day of that was more than enough for me...lol I had to basically force feed myself a salad at the end of the day, since I hadn't eaten anything else that day...I was extremely nauseated, to the point that I was in pain. However, the next day I cut the dose in half(estimated) and was doing much better...tomorrow I plan on increasing it back up to the 0.6mg. Since Monday when I started, I've lost about 3lbs...it may be a small amount but its a start! It does curb the cravings and wanting to eat in between meals, and even when I do eat, I'm not eating as much as I normally would. I intend on continuing the medication after the 30 day trial period, luckily it's covered by my insurance.
I will keep posted if I happen to see the medication helping in any other way, and I appreciate the feed back! : )
