Janumet is used to regulate high blood glucose levels in adults with Type 2 Diabetes. Janumet is a combination of Metformin and Sitagliptin, which increases the body’s insulin levels and restores the body’s sensitivity to insulin.
Janumet is taken orally as often as prescribed by the doctor, usually once or twice a day with meals. The dosage is based on the body’s glucose level, reception to the treatment, and other medications that one might be taking.
Take the Janumet the same time everyday with water. In the case of missing out on a dose, take it as soon as remembered unless close to the next scheduled dose. Otherwise, skip the missed dose and continue on the regular dosing schedule. Avoid double dosing or making up for missed doses as the body has to get used to the consistent regulation of the blood glucose levels. Janumet has to be swallowed whole— do not break or chew tablet.
Follow any other instructions specified by your doctor or indicated on the prescription label.
