Some people with type 2 diabetes may take Januvia® (sitagliptin) to lower their blood sugar levels. The medication works by increasing insulin production after meals and by decreasing the amount of sugar produced by the liver. In studies, Januvia lowered fasting blood sugar by 13 mg/dL on average.
 
Januvia tablets are available in three strengths: 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg. There are alternatives to Januvia, including lifestyle changes and other diabetes medications. Before taking Januvia, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about all of the medications you are currently taking and if you have kidney problems or any allergies.
