What is Januvia?

Januvia is a brand of sitagliptin manufactured by Merck Sharp and Dohme. It is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Januvia may be prescribed on its own or in conjunction with other antidiabetic medication, such as metformin or insulin.

You can renew your prescription for Januvia through our private online prescription service. Fill out our online medical form to begin your order.

Our online prescribers are on hand to review your online consultation and determine your suitability. If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, our pharmacy can dispatch your item the same day via a fast and discreet next-day delivery.


How Does Januvia Work?

Januvia contains sitagliptin, which is a Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor.

DPP-4 regulates incretin hormones by breaking them down. Sitagliptin binds to the DDP-4 enzyme and prevents the breakdown of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP).

GLP-1 and GIP, which are normally produced naturally in the body, stimulate the pancreas to produce more insulin and prevent the liver from creating more glucose.

By increasing the amount of GLP-1 and GIP, the body produces more insulin, so that more glucose can be moved from the blood to the cells that need it.

Reducing the level of glucose in the blood subsequently reduces the risk of complications caused by high blood sugar levels.


Side effects and cautions

You must read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your medicine before you start taking Januvia.

The patient information leaflet contains instructions on storing, taking and discarding your Januvia tablets, as well as important safety information about the product.
