About Januvia

What is Januvia?

Januvia, or sitagliptin, is classified as a gliptin or DDP-4 inhibitor drug. Januvia increases insulin production and reduces blood glucose levels in those with type 2 diabetes. Gliptins work by blocking the production of the enzyme DDP-4 in the body. One of the functions of the DDP-4 enzyme is to break down incretins. Incretins cause beta cells to release insulin in the body after eating. By inhibiting DDP-4, incretins are allowed to increase insulin production while secretion of glucagon is simultaneously decreased in the pancreas. This leads to a reduction in blood glucose levels.

You may be required to have regularly scheduled lab tests while taking this medication to monitor kidney function, hemoglobin, and glucose levels.

What if I forget to take a dose of Januvia?

If you miss a dose of Januvia, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. If it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue on your regular schedule. Do not take Januvia tablets more than once a day unless specifically instructed to do so by your doctor.

What are the possible side effects of taking Januvia?

How do I store Januvia?
