It is used alone or with other medications (e.g., Metformin, Glyburide, Gliclazide, or basal (long-acting) insulin) to improve blood glucose (sugar) levels for people with Type 2 Diabetes. It works by helping your body release more insulin and control blood glucose levels.

Bydureon (Exenatide) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Bydureon (Exenatide) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.

Bydureon Dosage

The usual adult dose of Bydureon (Exenatide) is 2 mg of extended release suspension, injected subcutaneously (under the skin) in the thigh, abdomen, or upper arm once a week.

Bydureon (Exenatide) extended-release is used with the guidance and supervision of a doctor. Your doctor or nurse will assist you in the preparation and injection of your first dose (or first few doses). Do not attempt to inject Bydureon (Exenatide) on your own until you completely understand how to inject a dose.

Bydureon (Exenatide) is provided in a pen injector that contains a glass cartridge with 2 compartments. One compartment contains the medication in a powder form, while the other compartment contains the diluent that, when mixed with the medication powder, creates a suspension that is injected. Read the user manual for instructions on how to properly use Bydureon (Exenatide). If you have questions about how to use Bydureon (Exenatide), contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Rotate the injection sites (arms, thighs, upper buttocks, or stomach) to minimize injection site skin irritation.

The diluent is clear and colourless and should not contain particles. After it has been mixed with the medication powder, the mixture will be white-to-off-white and cloudy. Inject the medication immediately after mixing the solution and powder.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are using the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Bydureon (Exenatide) be used exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, and it is less than 3 days since the missed dose, inject it as soon as possible. If it is more than 3 days since the missed dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not use a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Bydureon (Exenatide) in the refrigerator, protect it from light, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not allow it to freeze. If necessary, your pen may be stored at room temperature for up to 4 weeks.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Bydureon Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Bydureon (Exenatide).

Bleeding:  Bydureon (Exenatide) may cause a reduced number of platelets in the blood, which can make it difficult to stop cuts from bleeding. If you notice any signs of bleeding, such as frequent nosebleeds, unexplained bruising, or black and tarry stools, notify your doctor as soon as possible.

Blood sugar control: Fever, infection, surgery, or trauma may cause a loss of blood sugar control and you may need to change to insulin temporarily, until you recover. Your doctor will recommend when this is needed.

If you experience dizziness, palpitations (a rapid, pounding, or irregular heartbeat), fainting, or seizures, get immediate medical attention.

Kidney problems: Bydureon (Exenatide) may cause kidney problems. Your doctor will monitor your kidney function with blood tests while you are using Bydureon (Exenatide).
