Doctors have written more than 7 million prescriptions for this product. Unfortunately, it could allegedly cause side effects including thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, and other problems.
Victoza was marketed throughout the country after the FDA approved it in January 2010 as an easy way to treat diabetes effectively. The drug is injectable once a day to help patients manage their diabetes. Unfortunately, it is been found that the product can reportedly cause problems like kidney failure, thyroid cancer, and pancreatitis.

Since then, it is been used by thousands of patients.
