Well after 2 weeks of Byetta, I have lost 9 pounds! For the most part, I haven't had the horrible side effects that others have reported either.
Now for the warning! If you forget to eat withing the 30 minutes to an hour afterwards like they tell you to do, you will feel horrible!!! I wasn't hungry, but I had the shakes and felt like I could just sleep all day. Won't do that again!
