What is Bydureon BCise?

Bydureon BCise contains the prescription medicine exenatide, used to help control blood sugar levels in diabetes. Diabetes is a condition where the body is unable to produce enough insulin or does not respond to the insulin made as it normally would. This can lead to high blood sugar levels. Exenatide is classed as an incretin mimetic and is used alongside diet and exercise in diabetes.

Bydureon BCise is given as an injection under your skin and is usually injected once every 7 days. Bydureon can be used with or without food and given at any time of the day.

Bydureon BCise active ingredients

Incretins such as glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1), improve insulin release that is dependent on blood glucose.

Exenatide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist and has been shown in lab tests to attach to and stimulate the human GLP-1 receptor. This increases glucose-dependent insulin production from the pancreas as well as the release of insulin from pancreatic beta-cells.

Exenatide reduces inappropriately high levels of secretion of glucagon, increases insulin release from pancreatic beta-cells when blood glucose levels are high, and slows the time it takes for food to empty from the stomach. This combined action enables exenatide to help control blood glucose levels.

Bydureon BCise side effects

The most common side effects caused by Bydureon BCise include:

  • Pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, fever, increased heart rate, yellow color to eyes or skin
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) – headache, dizziness, weakness
