What is Januvia?
Januvia from Merck lowers blood sugar in persons with type 2 diabetes. It is seldom recommended to those with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis (high blood ketone levels). Januvia and its generic equivalents include sitagliptin, its active component. Januvia comes in pills of 25 mg, 50 mg, and 100 mg. Round film-coated tablets vary in color by strength. Tablet codes represent strengths. 25mg tablets are pink with "221," 50mg are light beige with "112," and 100mg are beige with "277."
Diet and exercise complement Januvia. If this medicine alone doesn't control blood sugar, it may be used with metformin. Janumet and Janumet XR include sitagliptin and metformin.
The patient's blood sugar levels, concurrent health problems, and response to therapy determine Januvia's dose. Januvia is taken daily.

How does Januvia work?
Januvia is a dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) prevention dental hyperglycemic. It promotes insulin synthesis in the pancreas as well as limits sugar production in the liver. Januvia functions by preventing DPP-4, an enzyme that breaks down glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) as well as glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP), two hormonal agents launched in the intestinal tracts after eating. When DPP-4 is reduced, the degrees of GLP-1 as well as GIP stay normal. As the outcome, the pancreas can create adequate insulin as well as the liver, in its turn, does not generate too much glucagon hormone, resulting in reduced blood glucose degrees.
Januvia Side Effects
The most common side effects reported include:
- Dizziness and/or nausea
- Loose stools and/or diarrhea
- Upset stomach
- Respiratory infections
Patients taking Januvia should seek medical help right away if they experience any less common but serious side effects, such as:
- pancreatitis (this condition usually manifests itself with such symptoms as persistent nausea and/or vomiting, decreased appetite, severe pain in the back or abdomen, increased body temperature)
- Serious kidney symptoms (reduced urine amounts, less need to urinate)
- Serious cardiovascular symptoms (trouble breathing, swelling of legs and/or ankles, and major fatigue)
- Bullous pemphigoid (blisters on skin, skin breaking)
Severe allergic reactions to Januvia are very rare. If you have any of these extreme adverse reaction symptoms, stop taking the drug and get medical attention: difficulty breathing, disorientation or unconsciousness, rashes or hives, tongue, cheek, or throat swelling.
