Description

Why is Januvia prescribed?

Januvia (Sitagliptin Phosphate) is a drug used, alongside proper diet and exercise, to regulate blood sugar levels in those with Type 2 diabetes. Sitagliptin works by increasing the amounts of certain natural substances in the body that lower blood sugar when it gets too high. Specifically, it helps to regulate the insulin produced by your body after you eat. Januvia is one important precaution diabetes and high blood sugar patients can take to avoid developing any serious health complications. Using this medication regularly as well as improving your diet and exercise routine may decrease the chances of heart attack, stroke, and many other life-threatening complications. Ensure you speak with your doctor and/or pharmacist about developing an action plan for this course of treatment. 

 
Januvia is available in various strengths and quantities including 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg.

  • Continue to take even if you feel well
  • Do not stop taking sitagliptin without talking to your doctor
