    I heard sitagliptine works well, my new doctor gave me Januvia, beacause metformin was not available in my social security (not USA). Before taking it, I investigated, AND BE AWARE this medicine has severe legal suits, and de FDA has a RECALL (word of caution) on sitagliptine. I Refuse to take it. You should Investigate and make your decition together with your doctor.

    I have been very happy with the use of this drug. I have been on it for quite a while, and my A1C has consistently been under 6. Now my prescription drug coverage wants to limit me to half the level I have been on. They don't care about keeping people well, they just want to save money.

    I've had no problems but have only taken the medication for 3 weeks. I have heard some negative things about this drug and wonder if anyone is having problems.
