What Is Tradjenta?

Tradjenta™ (linagliptin) is prescribed for treating type 2 diabetes in adults. But what is Tradjenta and how does it work?
 
Tradjenta is a medicine that belongs to a group of medications called dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors. It works by slowing down the breakdown of certain hormones in the body, increasing the production of insulin following meals, and decreasing the amount of glucose (sugar) produced by the liver.
 
This diabetes medication comes in one form and strength: 5-mg tablets. The standard recommended dosage is 5 mg taken once daily. Possible side effects may include a sore throat and a runny or stuffy nose.
