I was on Januvia for about 1 months when I started having left neck swelling and excruciating pain which quickly affected the entire left side of my face to the point where I couldn't keep my left eye open. I had trouble swallowing. Ibuprofen helped the pain, but ultimately I had to quit Januvia.

I have been on Januvia for 6 months. It took about 3 months for the sinus issues to clear. otherwise no other side effects. my a1c is 6.3% down from last test. the medication is working. I am very happy. it is costly even with insurance but Diabetes is so dangerous - it is worth it. dont give up, re: the initial side effects, they will go away.

I have been taking the drug for 2 months and my BS readings have dropped to within normal ranges. Side effects have been heart palpatations, loss of apetite, and nausia. I take it at night to avoid upset stomach. I Januvia along with 1500 Metformin a day. Combination seems to be working. I have had sinus infections that are difficult to eliminate.

Comment:
Started on Januvia when it 1st came out as I was diagnosed with Type II the same week and then the company that I worked for switched insurance companies. The new company forced me to switch to Actos. I gained 35 lbs and went crazy on the doctor. Needless to say, my doctor was nice enough to find a way to get me back on Januvia. I range from 90-120 and I've lost 10 lbs. Someone should do s ... Show Full Comment
