Considering BYETTA

When determining a treatment for your type 2 diabetes, your doctor will consider many factors. One factor may be that your current type 2 diabetes medicine, along with diet and exercise, is not controlling your blood sugar to your doctor’s satisfaction.

BYETTA injection is a medicine that helps treat people with type 2 diabetes in a different way than oral diabetes medications or insulin. When used with diet and exercise, BYETTA may help you get improved blood sugar (glucose) control in multiple ways.

If you’ve recently been prescribed BYETTA, or you’re considering whether BYETTA may be right for you, it's important to get the facts about this medicine. In this section, you can find out about the following:

Do Not:

  • Take BYETTA if you have had an allergic reaction to or any of the other ingredients in BYETTA. Severe allergic reactions can happen with BYETTA. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction include severe rash or itching, swelling of your face, lips, and throat that may cause difficulty breathing or swallowing, feeling faint or dizzy and very rapid heartbeat. If you have any symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, stop taking BYETTA and get medical help right away.
  • Share your BYETTA Pen with other people, even if the needle has been changed. You may give other people a serious infection, or get a serious infection from them.
