Diabetes Home > Januvia 100 mg Tablets

If you are an adult with type 2 diabetes (also known as adult-onset diabetes or noninsulin-dependent diabetes), your healthcare provider may recommend Januvia® (sitagliptin). This medication comes in the form of a tablet and is taken once a day.
Januvia is available in the following forms:
  • 25 mg Januvia tablets
  • 50 mg Januvia tablets
  • 100 mg Januvia tablets.
For most people taking this drug, dosing guidelines call for 100 mg a day. However, the Januvia 100 mg tablets may not be suitable for people with kidney problems, since the kidneys clear the drug from the body. A lower dosage (such as 25 or 50 mg) may be necessary.
