Januvia is a prescription drug that helps to control blood sugar levels in patients with Type 2 diabetes. It belongs to a class of drugs called DPP-4 inhibitors that influence alpha and beta cells in the pancreas to help regulate glucose levels. Januvia should be taken as part of a lifestyle program that includes changes in diet, exercise, and weight loss if necessary.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions when taking Januvia.
Januvia is taken once daily, with or without food.
Your doctor may adjust dosage to better control your diabetes, but it is important that you don’t change dosage on your own.
Before taking Januvia, inform your doctor if you have:
Kidney disease (including dialysis)
Pregnant or breastfeeding
Regular blood sugar monitoring is an important part of diabetes treatment. Low blood sugar can occur after skipping meals, strenuous exercise, or drinking alcohol. Learn to recognize signs of low blood sugar, including headache, sweating, weakness, confusion, and tremor. Carry sources of sugar such as glucose tablets or hard candy that can be used in case of low blood sugar.
Januvia is not meant to treat Type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.
Some of the most common side effects of Januvia include:
Upset stomach, diarrhea
Upper respiratory infection
More serious side effects include:
Signs of pancreatitis: severe pain in stomach, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite
Urinating less than usual or not at all
Shortness of breath
Skin reaction: swelling in face, burning in eyes, red or purple rash
Can I take Januvia if I have Type 1 diabetes?
No. Januvia is specifically for patients with Type 2 diabetes, and should only be taken under the care of a doctor.
How long will I need to take Januvia?
Continue taking Januvia as directed by your doctor. Lifestyle changes including diet and exercise can help better control your diabetes, and may reduce the need to take Januvia.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
