Liraglutide (marketed as Victoza) Information

FDA approved Victoza (liraglutide) as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Victoza is not recommended as first-line therapy for patients who have inadequate glycemic control on diet and exercise. Additionally, Victoza is not a substitute for insulin and should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus or for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis, as it would not be effective in these settings.
