    • Sweating
    • Shakiness
    • Extreme hunger
    • Dizziness
    • Cold sweats
    • Blurry vision
    • Changes in behavior, such as irritability
    • Loss of coordination

    • Vomiting

Januvia Side Effects: Final Thoughts

You may experience some or none of the side effects of Januvia explained above. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking Januvia. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a Januvia side effect, your healthcare provider should be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
