Loved my byetta and was doing great on the 5mg dose, had already adjusted and gotten over the nausea and barfing bit, when my doc went and decided to move me up to the 10mg dose, bad news! The higher dosage did something to my body that I was not able to keep ANYTHING down. I was taken off the 10mg dose and was off it completely for couple of weeks and we tried to go back to the 5mg dose since it was working but the 10mg dose had sensitized my system and now I can't take it at all. I really loved it, my b/s was totally normal, I had lost 18 lbs in a month and then oopsie!
I weighed all the pros and cons of even trying the drug and decided I could adjust or live with the occasional nausea and it does work, just be careful if they want to bump you up on the dosage. I don't know if anyone else had that issue and you may not but read all you can and make the personal decision for yourself.
Believe in your dreams, and they will become reality.
