FDA/CDER/Division of Drug Information (DDI)

The Division of Drug Information (DDI) is CDER’s focal point for public inquiries. We serve the public by providing information on human drug products and drug product regulation byFDA.


 

FDA approved Victoza (liraglutide) as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Victoza is not recommended as first-line therapy for patients who have inadequate glycemic control on diet and exercise. Additionally, Victoza is not a substitute for insulin and should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus or for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis, as it would not be effective in these settings.
