    I was prescribed Victoza 1.8 to control levels (which it has) and aid weight loss. Since August, I have put on 12lbs! I am always hungry. Has anyone else used this medication?

    I am on victoza. Was told it's a wonder drug, that I would lose weight.
    How wrong that us. Have put weight on and like you feel hungry.
    I do take other meds, not diabetic related that can cause hunger
