    This drug has changed my life. I am 50 and had taked everything, Rosiglitozone, pioglitozone, gliburide, metformin, you name it. Nothng worked, my blood sugar always ran between 160 and up, hba1c 7.5 to 8.5. Now I take 1000mg metformin and 100(1tab) Januvia and HBA1C is 5 - 5.2 consistantly and I feel 10yrs younger. Saved my life!!!
