    Hi Tankgirl and welcome.

    I'll bump your post up to see if someone on Liraglutide, (Victoza), can answer your query.

    Thank you for your replies.
    I have been on Sitagliptin and had terrible itching and been sick quite a bit but then again i have a reaction to Metformin too but my nurse wants me to go on Liraglutide but tells me its the same family of drugs and i would expect the same reactions. Other option is insulin
