Did you suffer side effects from taking Byetta?
Byetta is a prescription medication that is used to help control Type 2 Diabetes. This medication is closely related to other drugs, like incretin mimetics. Incretin mimetics mimic the effect of incretin hormones, otherwise known as GIP and GLP-1. These hormones are found in the gastrointestinal tract.
Amylin Pharmaceuticals and Eli Lilly & Co. manufactured an injectable form of this medication. Byetta was introduced as a medication for people with Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetics are not normally insulin dependent, but some of them can be, depending on how their pancreas works to produce insulin. Byetta’s directions said to inject this medicine twice per day, which would help to lower glucose levels.
