    I HAD A TERRIBLE REACTION TO THIS MEDICATION. AFTER ONLY 2 DOSES, I EXPERIENCED ACHES AND STIFFNESS IN BOTH CALFS OF LEGS. WITH THIRD DOSE, I EXPERIENCED HORRIBLE STABING PAIN IN LEFT TOES THAT OCCURRED EVERY 30 SECONDS TO 2 MINUTES FOR AT LEAST 23 HOURS. WILL NEVER TAKE THIS MEDICINE AGAIN.

    I have been on 100 mgs. Januvia (in combination with 1000 mgs. Metformin)for just over 3 months now. No ill side effects and saw a reduction in my appetite. The Met. alone would not lower my fasting BG - the Januvia had it normal within 10 days. Last A1c = 6.3, a drop from 10.4 in six month time frame.

    This is the first med I have tried for my diabetes. It, combined with diet and exercise has helped me keep my blood sugars at normal levels.
