    Hi was just wondering if anyone has suffered side effects when first starting levemir. I always seem to get a headache a hour or so after taking it.

    The only things I have noticed since starting both levemir and novorapid, is that I have put weight on. I was a touch underweight before, so no real problem, that I have noticed a few spots when I never used to get them.
