Taking this medication has produced a reaction. Swollen tongue and hard to swallow. Feels like phlem in my throat and can't remove it. Throat sore also. Dr prescribed Prednisone for inflammation of the throat...not working.

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.

Comment:
My fasting blood sugar is between 110 and 129 since starting this drug. Was always below 100 on Metformin. Unfortunatley, my digestive system couldn't handle it. That part is doing much better on Tradjenta, but now I'm experiencing swollen feet and ankles. Am seeing the doctor to get his opinion, but I'm not happy the sugar isn't controlled better. Probably need to find anothe ... Show Full Comment
