If Anyone Is Taking Januvia, How It Is Working For You? (possible Side Effects Have Scared Me) I Also Take 2000 Mg Metformin Daily.

If Anyone Is Taking Januvia, How It Is Working For You? (possible Side Effects Have Scared Me) I Also Take 2000 Mg Metformin Daily.

Six months ago my A1C was 7.2; at that time my Dr. doubled my Metformin so I now take 1000 milligrams twice a day. He also added [[treatment:Januvia:5612ce4f6bcd619a[[phone:12000360]] 100:]] mgs daily. I decided to work harder on diet and exercise and not take the Januvia. My next A1C was 6.7. I have continued with the 2000 mgs of metformin daily, and no Januvia. My question for all of you is - if you take Januvia, how is it working? I have read the possible side effects and find them quite… read more

I Have Chronic Kidney Disease And Am Type 2 Diabetic, My Diabetes.

The new physician concerned and put me on janumet XR. I have read about it and concerned .
Any feedback would be helpful

Januvia?

Januvia?

I was diagnosed with Type 2 a year ago. Doctor started me out on Metformin. In that period of time the dose got up to 2500 once a day, with Victoza added. I was so sick and fatigued I could barely get out of bed everyday. I kept telling my doctor about the fatigue, vomiting, he didn't change my meds. I found another doctor who recognized my adverse reactions to the drugs, and took me off of them.. Now I am on 100 mg of Januvia daily... so far no bad side affects. My AIC is 5.8. Is anyone else on… read more

I just started a low dose of Januvia. That was a big step for me. So far I can tolerate it. My ARNP says it is more tolerable for many of her patients sensitive to other meds. I am not sure what the… read more

You can maybe ask your pharmacist. But diabetes is a progressive disease so I would think the answer would not be accurate. What works for 1 diabetic does not always work for others neither. Each… read more

Had Anyone Had Success With Adding Januvia To Existing Metformin?

Had Anyone Had Success With Adding Januvia To Existing Metformin?

My husband was diagnosed several years ago. Had only been on Metformin which kept his numbers under control. Recently his A1C went up to 8.1 Dr has recommended adding 100mg of Januvia once a day. We have a 21 day sample supply. Has anyone had success with adding this drug?

A DiabetesTeam Member said:

@A DiabetesTeam Member, it depends on what insurance you have. I’m with Ambetter, and my twice daily dose of Janumet, which is Januvia/Metformin combo, costs me $30 a month - my generics are $0.

I have been taking prandin for a while along with januvia. My question is can I try this amaryl along with my januvia? Do I need to ask my doctor if I could switch prandin to amaryl and continue with my januvia?

I was on Januvia I had to get off I bought pancreatitis has no cure. No other pain is close to it not even morphine will take it away. I was in hospital for 39 days.
