Januvia is used for treating type 2 diabetes in patients who cannot control blood sugar levels by diet and exercise alone. It is used along with diet and exercise. It may be used alone or with other antidiabetic medicines.
Use Januvia as directed by your doctor.
Take Januvia by mouth with or without food.
Continue to take Januvia even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Januvia.
Drug Class and Mechanism
Januvia is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. It works by increasing insulin release, which helps to lower blood sugar.
If you miss a dose of Januvia and are taking it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Store Januvia at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep in a tight, light-resistant container. Keep Januvia out of the reach of children and away from pets.

Do not use Januvia if:
you are allergic to any ingredient in Januvia;

Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.

Lab tests, including fasting blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, and kidney function, may be performed while you use Januvia. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.
Use Januvia with caution in the elderly; they may be more sensitive to its effects.
Januvia should be used with extreme caution in children younger than 18 years old; safety and effectiveness in these children have not been confirmed.
