Victoza Side Effects

Serious Side Effects

Some side effects of Victoza, while occurring infrequently, are potentially serious and should be reported immediately to your healthcare provider. Some of the warning signs of these adverse reactions include:
  • Signs or symptoms of a thyroid tumor, such as:
    • A lump in the neck
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Shortness of breath
    • A persistent hoarse voice
  • Signs or symptoms of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), such as:
    • Severe, persistent abdominal pain (stomach pain), sometimes radiating to the back
    • Vomiting
  • Symptoms of dangerously low blood sugar, such as:
    • Extreme hunger
    • Blurry vision
    • Dizziness
    • Shakiness
    • Changes in behavior, such as irritability or mood swings
    • Loss of coordination
    • Cold sweats
    • Difficulty speaking
    • Sweating
    • Confusion
    • Seizures
    • Unconsciousness
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, such as:
    • Hives
    • Itching
    • An unexplained rash
    • Swelling of the mouth or throat
    • Wheezing or other difficulty breathing.
Victoza is unlikely to cause dangerously low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) when used by itself. However, combining it with other medications that lower blood sugar may increase this risk. Always follow your healthcare provider's instructions for monitoring your blood sugar.
