Janumet side effects

I started Janumet since then I have been having vaginal soreness not burning sore like from being very dry ## I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. I couldn't find anything listed about Janumet causing this type of side effect, but there's no way to know how any medication is going to affect anyone that tries it, since everyone is different. Learn more Janumet details here. Have you consulted your doctor? It could also be due to a hormonal imbalance, which can happen in women at any age. ## Wondering if the side effects of Janumet (slow release) are to blame for patches of alopecia on the hairline? Also diarrhea every day after taking the tablet at breakfast? Thank you.

Monster Sized Pills

Doctor ordered me Janumet XR but there was no way I could take these horse-pills. The pills were huge and they couldn't be crushed or cut. I had to go back on Metformin and Januvia separately. Maybe the company should issue the medication in half a dosage taken twice a day rather than these Monster Pills.

Can I take Janumet Tylenol at the same time

I have a BAD headache, I take Janumet daily and I need to know if I can take Tylenol at the same time with the Janumet. ## I didn't find any problems, or interactions listed, but it is always best to double check to be sure. The FDA does warn that you may experience nausea, dizziness, and headache. Do you have any idea what has caused the headache? Have you checked your blood sugar levels? If they are too high, or too low, the NIH warns that headaches could be a symptom. Are you on any other medications?

My husband, 56yr old, is diabetic for around 16 yrs. He has been on insulin for 4yrs. From April this yr dr has given 31 units rhyzodeg per day.
