I just started taking Trajenta a month ago. I have experienced fast heart rate and I have become very jittery. It scares me sometimes. I was on Metformin before but that did not agree with my stomach. I become very weak and nervous. I am going to check with my doctor once again to see if there is another drug I can try. I'm thinking since I was diagnosed with border line diabetes maybe th ... Show Full Comment
