   Vicoza is a great med from all those I have heard from,    you say your eating  good but that can mean several things.    If your eating  caarbs there going to raise your bs,   so look back at what you ate even if its a fruit it can raise you.    If your numbers stay that high get back to your doctor and report it doesnt sound good.

Thanks for the info, I should have mentioned that I also take 1000 mg Metformin and was taken off of Glipizide.  So far my numbers are below 100


 



I know metformin is ok to be on with victoza.

Metformin is ok to be on   just make sure you test often  as you could go low.

That is a very good question,    I know that the two meds are different but be careful as both can bring down readings.   How much Lantus are you taking at a time,   remember is a basal insulin so it might not hurt to take both but when I was on byetta and taking Lantus it is considered what they call taking it off label   I dont know about victoza though.
