Januvia should be taken exactly the way your doctor prescribed you to take, as your doctor may need to alter your dose in order to find the correct dose for you. It is important to adhere to the instructions on the prescription label or instruction sheets provided.
During treatment, you may need to undergo frequent blood tests and blood sugar level tests by your doctor.
In some cases, your doctor may prescribe you with a glucagon emergency injection kit for serious hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) episodes where you may not be able to consume food or water. It is important your family members and close friends are familiar with administering this injection for you for emergency situations.
If you experience symptoms of increased thirst, urination, blurred vision, headache, and fatigue, you may be suffering from high blood sugar levels, also known as hyperglycemia.
There are many reasons that could result in changes to your blood sugar levels such as, stress, illness, surgery, exercise, alcohol consumption, and poor diet. Always consult with your doctor first prior to switching the strength, frequency, or schedule of your medication.
Maintaining a healthy diet, exercising frequently, watching your weight, consistent blood sugar testing, and specialized medical care is all vital in assisting your treatment while taking Januvia.
Januvia should be kept in a dark, cool, and dry place where young children and pets are unable to access.
The usual dose for adults with type 2 diabetes is to take a 100mg JANUVIA tablet once every day.
