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?
