What is Januvia used for?
Januvia (Sitagliptin) is an oral diabetes medication that is used alone or in combination with other medications in people with type 2 diabetes. Sitagliptin belongs to the group of diabetes medications
called DPP-4 inhibitors. This medication works by increasing the amount of incretin released by the intestine which regulates the levels of insulin your body produces after eating. Incretin is a hormone that raises insulin levels when blood sugar is high and decreases the amount of sugar made by the body. Januvia is used with a proper diet and exercise program and with other medications to control high blood sugar. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. By controlling your diabetes properly, you may lessen the risk of a heart attack or stroke. The usual dose of Januvia is 100 mg take once daily with or without food.
