Questions To Ask Your Doctor

JANUVIA (jah-NEW-vee-ah) is a once-daily prescription pill that, along with diet and exercise, helps lower blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. JANUVIA should not be used in patients with type 1 diabetes or with diabetic ketoacidosis (increased ketones in the blood or urine). If you have had pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), it is not known if you have a higher chance of getting it while taking JANUVIA. Serious side effects can happen in people who take JANUVIA, including pancreatitis, which may be severe and lead to death. Before you start taking JANUVIA, tell your doctor if you've ever had pancreatitis. Stop taking JANUVIA and call your doctor right away if you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe and will not go away. The pain may be felt going from your abdomen through to your back. The pain may happen with or without vomiting. These may be symptoms of pancreatitis. Before you start taking JANUVIA, tell your doctor if you have ever had heart failure (your heart does not pump blood well enough) or have problems with your kidneys. Contact your doctor right away if you have increasing shortness of breath or trouble breathing (especially Continue reading >>

Januvia Has Stopped Working?

HealingWell.com Forum > Diseases & Conditions > Diabetes > Januvia has stopped working? Hi: I have been on Januvia for about 4 years; my bs in the am has always been under 100. about 3 months ago, it went over 100 and has never broken 100 since. Usually it is between 108 and 126, which is too high. Does anyone know what happens when 100 mg of Januvia is not enough. My diet, etc. has been stable. I weigh about 120 lbs.; 5'6" tall-- weight was never an issue in the diagnosis. Welcome to HealingWell, Irish Eyes. Gosh, I'm sorryabout this problem. I'm sure you're frustrated. I cannot answer your question but I hope someone who's familiar with Januvia will come along and help you with this. HI: Thank you for the warm welcome. I, too, hope there is a simple answer-- like, increase the dose slightly. You need to start a food/exercise diary that you can fax to your doctor's office along with daily blood glucose readings. I suspect that you may have become lax in your portion control on carbs or you may not have been as active lately. Regardless of the changes or no changes your doctor needs to be aware of this. Call the office and speak with the nurse or doctor. A medication change may be Continue reading >>

I've Added Januvia

I'm on 2000mg Metformin and 30mg Actos, and it isn't working well anymore. This morning I told my PCP at the VA I wanted to add a DPP-4 inhibitor. She said we had to have several other things fail before we went there. I asked if this was procedure, or if you just don't carry that drug in the VA pharmacy. Since I don't use their pharmacy, no problem. I'm now on 25mg of Januvia for a few weeks to see what happens. It is nice to have a doctor who is willing to listen and work with me. The doc did say that if the Januvia didn't work, we would work with the pharmacist to find another option......I guess the VA doesn't have Endocrinologists??? Good for you, Kyle. Sounds like you did your research and that your doctor recognized that. I suspect that there are a lot of drugs that are not part of the VA forumulary and/or that the VA will not allow their doctors to prescribe unless and until all cheaper medications been tried first. So good for you for giving your doctor the option of working with an outside pharmacy. I assume you know that Januvia (DPP-4 inhibitor) is the weakest of the incretin family of drugs. I hope it works well for you. But if not, do consider one of the other GLP-1 Continue reading >>
