Januria Information

Please share information about this drug, what it is used for, etc... ## Based on the spelling, I think you may have meant to say "Januvia" (sitagliptin phosphate). Is that correct? Januvia is an oral prescription medication marketed for managing type-2 diabetes. MedlinePlus.gov states that it works by increasing the amounts of certain natural substances that lower blood sugar when it is high. According to the manufacturer's claims, Januvia can reportedly lower blood sugar more than Metformin alone and is said to be very powerful in that regard. Drug Class: dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors - (antihyperglycemic) Manufacturer: Merck & Co. Dosing: Januvia is said to be taken once a day with or without food. I hope this helps!

Diabetes meds

I started taking Januvia together with metformin. After a few days i started getting a burning sensation in my arms. After taking januvia for about 20 days I went back to my doctor and she removed the januvia but I still get a burning sensation. Is the januvia still in my system and how long before it goes out? ## Hello, Meg! How are you doing? Do you still have the burning sensation? What are your normal blood sugar levels? The burning sensation could be due to nerve damage, from the diabetes, rather than a medication side effect. ## I'm from Sri Lanka and I want to use "m 21 Diabetes medicine". How can I get it? How much does it cost? Do any pharmacies carry it in Sri Lanka?

JANUVIA IS THE BEST MEDICATION FOR ME

I have been type 2, for 10 years, 3 years ago I was put on Sitagliptin, then last year on Invokana, lost weight and also lowered sugar numbers, then instead of using diet and excercise I just used the tabets to keep sugars down, then sugars went to 8.7 HBAC1, was put on Victoza and both medications stopped, in last 3 months, my sugars on Victoza sky rocketed to 11.9 HBAC1. After a massive argument with the GP, I asked to be put back in Januvia and Invokana, my sugars over the last months have been in their 15 to 20, I took one tabet of each yesterday, and my number are in single figures, I have vowed to keep drinking more, do my excercises and also now go on a low carb diet, I am grateful for these new medications, without which my sugars was out of control, and my next option was Insulin

Januvia 100mg and Xidgduo 10/mg1000mg

I am taking this, just started with Januvia 100mg and Xidgduo 10/mg1000mg. Can these both be taken at the same time? I cannot remember what he told me. I think he said take them both cause I was taking Farxiga 10mg and Janumet 500/1000mg. Is this the same thing with these new pills? ## Hello, Frank! How are you? If they were prescribed to replace the others, then I would think they are meant to be taken together, but only your doctor can give you a definitive answer. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, flatulence, stomach pain, and hypoglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with?

Januvia is in my stool

I don't know why the pill did not dissolve. I picked it up just to make sure, with a glove on of course. No wonder my sugar was high every morning. I took this medication at night. But not only 1 pill, I took 3. Before that I was bloated and had diarrhea that morning, but when I passed the stool I felt relieved n felt good. I stopped and found that my sugar levels were fine in the morning and my blood sugar is ok. ## What you are seeing in your stool is just the shell of the pill. Some components of this medication are not meant to be digested or dissolved by your body, instead they are part of a mechanism to help control how much of the medication you receive in your body, at once. If you stopped taking it abruptly, you need to inform your doctor and discuss the issue with them, as...

januvia-how your body absorbs it

would like to know if anyone that uses januvia has had a problem with it passing thru their system without dissloving? I have been experencing this since I've been taking it and all my dr. says it to take it at a different time of day which doesn't help ## Hello, Cherie! How are you? The outer shell won't dissolve, but the medication is still being released and used by your body. Many medications use a shell to help control the release of the medication and help prevent stomach damage and then that shell is just expelled by your body as waste. The FDA lists this as an oral antidiabetic medication and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, stomach pain, flatulence and hypoglycemia. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank...

how long does side effects go away

Taking Januvia for years. Developed severe itching my dermatologist said stop taking it. How long till itching stops. ## If you were on it for that long, it may take a month or so, for the side effects to fully wear off and for your body to settle down and return to normal. Since it is used to treat diabetes, have you replaced it with anything else? You can't just stop a medication like this, since you still need to control your blood sugar. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, flatulence and hypoglycemia.
