Type 2 diabetes can be frustrating. Sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you just don't see the results. Your needs change over time and the medicine that worked before may not be enough now. You may need to take your treatment plan in another direction.
It may be time to talk to your doctor about BYDUREON. BYDUREON is an injectable prescription medicine used just once a week that may help improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used along with diet and exercise. BYDUREON may be able to help you reach the blood sugar goal you have agreed on with your doctor.

BYDUREON is a long-acting form of the medication in BYETTA® (exenatide) injection so both drugs should not be used together. BYDUREON is not a substitute for insulin and has not been studied in combination with insulin. BYDUREON is not for people with type 1 diabetes or people with diabetic ketoacidosis (a condition caused by very high blood sugar). BYDUREON is not recommended for use in children. It is not known if BYDUREON is safe and effective in people with a history of pancreatitis or severe kidney problems.
