Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Janumet XR include the following:
 
  • Janumet XR comes in the form of a tablet. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
 
  • You should take your dose with a meal to minimize the risk for stomach upset. It is best to take it with your evening meal.
 
  • If your dosage requires you to take two Janumet XR tablets, take them together once a day. 
 
  • These tablets must be swallowed whole. Do not split, crush, cut, or chew them.
  • Some people have seen incompletely dissolved Janumet XR tablets in the stool. If you repeatedly see this, notify your healthcare provider.
 
  • Try to take your dose at about the same time each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
