Indication

Victoza (Liraglutide) belongs to a group of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It is used along with other medications by adults and children older than 10 years of age, to improve blood glucose (sugar) levels for people with Type 2 Diabetes. It works by helping your body make more insulin and control blood glucose levels.

Victoza (Liraglutide) is also used for people with type 2 diabetes who also have cardiovascular disease. It is used in addition to diet, exercise, and other medications to reduce the risk of dying from cardiac disease.

Victoza (Liraglutide) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Victoza (Liraglutide) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Victoza (Liraglutide) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Victoza (Liraglutide) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are being given Victoza (Liraglutide), speak to your doctor. Do not stop using Victoza (Liraglutide) without consulting your doctor.

Dosage

It can be injected at any time of the day, without regard to meals. After one week, your doctor may increase the dose to 1.2 mg once daily. If needed, your doctor may increase the dose again in one week to 1.8 mg once daily. Do not change your dose unless your doctor has told you to do so.

If you are also using insulin, each medication should be injected separately.
