Byetta® (exenatide) is a medication approved to treat type 2 diabetes. It comes in injection form and is generally given twice a day before the two main meals. Byetta increases insulin production in response to meals, decreases the amount of glucose that the liver produces, and slows the emptying of food from the stomach. Side effects of the medicine may include headache, diarrhea, and vomiting. Byetta should only be used in combination with certain oral diabetes drugs.
