Victoza is a type 2 diabetic medication that I was on for about a year. Late last year or maybe it was early this year my insurance company insisted I try something else because of the outrageous cost of Victoza. It runs about $800 a month. So I got switched to Trulicity, and found that it worked just as well for the diabetes. Now I've read some articles that Victoza has neuroprotective properties and is in trials as a Parkinson medication. So this morning when I went to see my GP doctor for a referral to the Movement Disorder Clinic I also asked him to change my prescription back to Victoza and tell the insurance company that this is the one I need to take. Sure hope it works. Does anyone else take Victoza?
