Janumet XR (Sitagliptin/Metformin): Overview
This medicine is prescribed for people who have type 2 diabetes and can be treated safely with the active ingredients sitagliptin and metformin extended-release drug.
It is manufactured by Merck & Co. and we stock it in these dosages 50mg/500mg, 50mg/1000mg and 100mg /1000mg extended-release tablets.
What is Janumet XR used for?
This medicine for diabetics. It is designed as an addition to their lifestyle, including diet and exercise. It works to enhance the blood sugar control of patients living with type 2 diabetes. The medicine is not suitable for anyone with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.
It consists of two diabetes drugs: sitagliptin and metformin. The two work distinctly to regulate blood sugar. Sitagliptin is in a group of drugs called DPP-4(dipeptidyl peptidase-4) inhibitors. Its role is to break down incretin hormones that make the pancreas release insulin when a patient eats. This medication works to blocks the DPP-4 enzyme and this increases the amount of incretin hormones in the blood. As a result, more insulin is made when a patient eats and less glucose is made by the liver.
On the other hand, Metformin is put in a category of drugs called biguanides and its work is to lower blood sugar levels. It can decrease the quantity of glucose made by the liver, reduce the quantity of glucose absorbed through the small intestines or enhance insulin sensitivity and the use by body cells. It contains extended-release metformin and should be taken one time per day.
How is Sitagliptin/Metformin dosage best taken?
The right dosage should be determined by a medical expert. They will consider how severe your condition is and whether you can take it safely. It is a tablet that is taken one time per day.
It should be taken with food to reduce the odds of having abdominal discomfort. Most doctors recommend taking it in the evening with your dinner. Sometimes the doctor will prescribe two tablets per day. In such a case, the two tablets should be taken with your evening meal. Furthermore, swallow your tablet whole rather than splitting, chewing or crushing it.
Take your medicine at a similar moment, every day, as this will maintain an even level of it in your bloodstream. Taking this diabetic medication does not mean that you should stop eating your diabetic diet or following your workout routine. Continue to eat right and exercising to ensure proper blood sugar control. If you do this and take your tablet as needed, it will further help control your blood sugar.
There are some side effects. The common ones are just a few and they include:
- Upper respiratory system infections.
Any other serious side effect should be reported to the doctor.
