I would like to hear from other Victoza users about their experiences with injection site skin reactions.
I started Victoza about a month ago - works great for appetite suppression and lowering sugars, but I find the injection site irritation annoying. A few hours after administration, the injection site gets itchy, red to about 1-2 inches across, a bit raised, warm and lasts about 3-4 days at that site. I don't have any systemic reaction (no sites other than injection site which develop red spots, no rashes elsewhere).
I attached a photo of yesterday's injection site on my right thigh.
I'd like to know how common this is, should I be worried? Is it my injection technique? Just wondering.
Thank you in advance for your help. I'm new here. Read many posts for hours yesterday. Very informative resource.2741-skininjectionsite.JPG (899 KB)
