WHAT IS BYDUREON® (exenatide extended-release for injectable suspension) 2 mg?
BYDUREON is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar (glucose) in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus, and should be used along with diet and exercise. BYDUREON is not recommended as the first choice of medicine for treating diabetes.
BYDUREON is not a substitute for insulin and is not for people with type 1 diabetes or people with diabetic ketoacidosis. BYDUREON is a long-acting form of the medication in BYETTA® (exenatide) injection so both drugs should not be used at the same time. It is not known if BYDUREON can be used in people with a history of pancreatitis or if BYDUREON is safe and effective for use in children.
