Rating in effectiveness is fake (must fill).Didn't give me a chance to make blood works to see if it was effective because on my 8th pill it developed a severe rash in my thighs. $17 a tablet super expensive though.

Comment:
I started taking this medication on July 1, 2014. On July 4th a rash developed on my face and neck. I phoned into the advise nurse who told me to stop taking the medication and they will make a call to my doctor. I found out a rash was one of the serious size effects. It has kept my sugar levels down though.

AFTER BEING OFF THIS DRUG FOR A MONTH NOW, MY SUGAR LEVELS ARE ACTUALLY GOING DOWN - watching what I'm eating. TRADJENTA DIDN'T DO ANYTHING FOR ME. See below post. Rx companies are getting rich at $854 for 90 day supply.

I'VE BEEN ON TRADJENTA 5MG FOR SEVERAL MONTHS (6?) AND I CAN'T SEE ANY HELP USING THIS $854 DRUG (90 DAY SUPPLY). I'VE STOPPED TAKING IT TO SEE IF MY SUGAR LEVELS GO UP, DOWN OR STAY THE SAME. I THINK DIET, EXERCISE & WEIGHT CONTROL HAS TO DO MORE IN HELPING SUGAR LEVELS BEING WHERE THEY SHOULD BE.
