Byetta (exenatide) causes weight loss of 10-20 lbs notes Alan Schulman, MD

The diabetes drug Byetta (exenatide), which is given twice a day by subcutaneous injection -- under the skin -- causes a 4-5 pound weight loss after five months, and a weight loss of about 11 pounds after two years according to an email I received from weight loss specialist Alan N. Schulman, MD of Rockville, Maryland. However, he said that an endocrinologist -- hormone specialist -- told him that he is routinely seeing weight loss of 10-20 pounds with the drug in his patients who in addition get "standard endocrinology practice medications", for diabetes, I assume, and "dietician counseling" for diabetes, I assume. Dr. Schulman's website can be found here. Articles about Byetta

When I started on Byetta, I was 330lbs.
In about 6 months I was down to about 280lb.
I went off byetta for a while because my doctor was concerned about my blood work.
By the time I was up to 295lb, my doctor put me back on and I am now about 280lb.
I have not been able to loose any more weight for about 6 months.
Byetta was really helpful for me in loosing 45 to 50 lbs, but it seems it is more useful to some than others and results vary from person to person.
