Januvia Medicine

Januvia® (sitagliptin) is an oral drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. It comes in the form of a tablet and is taken once a day. The prescription medication works by increasing insulin production in response to meals and decreasing the amount of sugar that the liver produces. Although most people tolerate it well, side effects of Januvia can include sore throat, headaches, and upper respiratory infections, such as the common cold.
 
In order to help ensure safe treatment with this medication, Januvia's safety information should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before you start taking it. Prior to beginning treatment, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have kidney problems or pancreatitis, or have any allergies.
