vytosa for weight loss

Doctor wanted me to try the injection vytosa for weight loss. Iam not a diabetic but they say it helps you to loose weight. Anyone have any experience with this?

Re: vytosa for weight loss

I wouldn't do it. It's called Victoza and it's only meant for Type 2 Diabetes patients, not for people who just want to lose weight. The FDA has put a black box warning on it because it causes thyroid cancer and pancreatitis. I would stay away from that stuff if I were you. Off label use like that can be extremely dangerous with drugs that have a black box warning already on them.

Re: vytosa for weight loss

I didn't know there was a black box warning on that drug. My doctor prescribed it to me as well for weight loss and I don't have diabetes.
