What is Januvia?
Januvia is an antihyperglycemic drug made of sitagliptin (a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 or DPP-4 enzyme inhibitor). It helps regulate insulin levels after meals, thereby improving glycemic control. Through the selective inhibition of DDP-4, it slows the inactivation of incretin hormones, subsequently decreasing glucagon levels and stimulating insulin release. Januvia is formulated with 50mg of the active ingredient. This diabetes medicine is supplied as film-coated, round tablets. Januvia is produced by Merck, a multinational pharmaceutical company headquartered in New Jersey, United States. This is a prescription drug.
What is it used for?
Januvia is used in adult patients who have type II diabetes to improve their blood sugar control. It is typically used as an adjunctive treatment to lifestyle interventions such as diet and/or exercise. Januvia is not recommended for the treatment of type I diabetes mellitus. Similarly, it should not be used in patients with diabetic ketoacidosis. As with most antihyperglycemic drugs, the effectiveness of Januvia in children has yet to be established (avoid use whenever possible).
Why use it?
Januvia significantly improves glycemic control in patients who suffer from type II diabetes. Being FDA approved, the drug has been clinically proven safe and efficacious. For best results, patients should use Januvia exactly as directed.Click to read more Click to read less
