Victoza Drug Info (Pack with 2-3 3 mL pens x 6 mg/ml each


    Victoza is a daily injectable prescription antidiabetic drug used to help improve blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. It should be used together with a healthy amount of diet and regular exercise. Its active ingredient contains liraglutide.


    Victoza (liraglutide) belongs to a specific class of medicines called GLP-1 analogues, which help your body produce more insulin when your blood sugar levels are high. It acts very similar to a hormone that naturally occurs in the body to help control blood sugar, insulin control, and digestion.

    Liraglutide leads to insulin release from beta cells located in your pancreas when there are increased levels of blood sugar, like after you eat a meal. The insulin release slows down as your blood sugar levels decrease and approach normal blood sugar levels. Glucagon, which is also produced and released from the pancreas, works in the opposite way of insulin in that it increases blood sugar. Liraglutide also decreases glucagon production and release, and increases the rate at which food leaves the stomach.


    Always follow the health advice of your doctor or other healthcare professional.

    The typical starting dose is 0.6 mg once a day for at least the first week of use. Your physician will tell you how long to keep taking this dose. Your dose may then be increased to 1.2 mg one time a day. Your doctor may tell you to increase the dose If your blood sugar is not under control well enough with a dose of 1.2 mg, up to 1.8 mg once a day. Do not change your dosage unless your physician or healthcare professional has specifically told you to.

Victoza (Liraglutide)

Victoza (Liraglutide)

Victoza (Liraglutide) is an injectable medication prescribed to adults with type 2 diabetes. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist that works by stimulating insulin production and reducing glucose levels in the bloodstream. Victoza is also used to lower the risk of major cardiovascular events in people with type 2 diabetes and established heart disease. Additionally, it may help with weight management in some patients.

Why Choose Victoza?

Victoza mimics the action of GLP-1, a naturally occurring hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. It stimulates insulin production when blood sugar levels are high and reduces the amount of glucose produced by the liver. It also slows down digestion, which may help with weight management.

How to use Victoza?

Victoza is administered as a subcutaneous injection, typically once daily. The initial dose is usually 0.6 mg per day, which may be increased gradually to a maximum of 1.8 mg per day, depending on the patient’s response and tolerability. The injection can be given at any time of the day, with or without meals. Always follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and the guidelines provided in the medication leaflet.

Important Safety Information Victoza

Before starting Victoza, inform your healthcare provider about any other medications you are taking, as well as any allergies, medical conditions, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Victoza is not recommended for people with a history of pancreatitis or thyroid cancer.
