What is victoza?

Victoza 0.6 mg/0.1 mL (18 mg/3 mL) Sub-Q Pen Injector
Drug Name: LIRAGLUTIDE - INJETION
Other Brand Names: Victoza
Uses: Liraglutide is used either alone or with other medications, and with a proper diet and exercise program, to control high blood sugar. It is used in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Liraglutide is similar to a natural hormone in your body (incretin). It works by causing insulin release in response to high sugar levels (such as after a meal) and decreasing the amount of sugar your liver makes. Liraglutide is not a substitute for insulin if you require insulin treatment. This medication should not be used in patients with Type 1 diabetes.
