Hello from JustAnswer.
Victoza should not be used if it has been frozen. Unfortunately, once it is frozen, the drug will lose much of its potency. There may be some residual potency, but it will typically not be sufficiently potent to be adequate for treatment. So, it would be better to be discarded and a new supply acquired.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
