    Cost of Diabetes Medication

    Ok here is the deal!
    I'm going broke
    It costs me 109.00 for one pen of Victoza Liraglutide. Not to mention strips and needles.
    I was on the net and discovered something cheaper. I don't think it was a generic drug as Liraglutide has only been out since 2010.
    I forgot to book mark the page but they said there was an alternative drug available that is cheaper.
