Janumet is an oral prescription medication, used to control high blood sugar in individuals with type 2 diabetes. It comes in the form of a 50mg tablet, to be taken twice a day. Janumet is regarded as a combination medication, as it should be used alongside an effective diet and exercise regime, in order to get the most out of it when treating your diabetes. Janumet contains the active ingredients; Metformin and Sitagliptin, and effectively lowers blood sugar levels by helping the pancreas to produce more insulin, helping the body to use insulin in a more effective manner, and by decreasing excess sugar produced in the liver. Janumet can be use by men and women under the age of 18, with type 2 diabetes.
When taking Janumet tablets, a number of benefits can be experienced as well as lowering blood sugar levels.
Janumet is a combination medication that contains 2 active ingredients: sitagliptin and metformin. They are used together to improve glucose levels in your blood and do so in different ways:
Sitagliptin is part of a group of medications called DPP-4 inhibitors. It increases the amount of a natural substance called 'incretin' hormones in the intestine, after a meal. These hormones will raise insulin levels only when the glucose levels in the blood are too high, which will reduce the amount of sugars in your body. Sitagliptin will also decrease the amount of sugar produced by the liver.
Metformin is a biguanide medication that works by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by liver cells, that your stomach or intestines absorb. It will also assist your body by making it respond more effectively to the naturally produced insulin that your body produces.
Janumet tablets are extremely easy to take. It is always best to take a Janumet tablet twice a day with a meal and preferably with a glass of water. This particular tablet shouldn't be split, cut, or broken before taking it.
If you miss a dose, it is advised that you wait until you are due your next dose, rather than making up for it by taking extra. Janumet should be taken regularly, at the same time each day, in order to get the most from it.
Janumet is made specifically for patients with type 2 diabetes and should not be used to treat type 1 diabetes. It is also considered unsuitable for people who have pre-existing health conditions including decreased liver function, kidney problems and metabolic acidosis (including diabetic ketoacidosis.) You will also not be prescribed this medication if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

However, like all prescription medications, there is a risk of developing side effects. Most of these side effects are fairly mild in nature and commonly disappear once your body has become accustomed to the treatment. The more common side effects associated with Janumet are nausea, flatulence and vomiting. Very rare side effects include constipation, diarrhoea and sleepiness. If you have any concerns about a specific side effect persisting, it is recommended that you contact your doctor.
