What Is Trajenta?

Trajenta is an oral antidiabetic tablet used to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes.

You may be prescribed Trajenta on its own or in conjunction with another antidiabetic, such as metformin. Some medicines, such as Jentadueto, combine metformin with linagliptin in a single tablet.

Our online prescribers can issue a private prescription of Trajenta following an online consultation. If your order is approved before 3pm on weekdays, you could get Trajenta tablets delivered to your door the next day.


How Does Trajenta Work?

The active ingredient in Trajenta, known as linagliptin, stimulates the pancreas to produce insulin.

With more insulin available, more glucose can be absorbed into the body’s cells. This decreases the amount of glucose in the blood.


How do I take Trajenta?

Take one Trajenta tablet a day.

Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Trajenta tablets can be taken with or without food.

Do not crush or chew Trajenta tablets.

You should always take the exact dose as prescribed by your doctor.


Side effects and cautions

Before taking Trajenta, read the patient information leaflet provided with your medicine.

You can view the patient information leaflet for Trajenta online.

Discuss any doubts you have with one of our online prescribers.

Side effects

All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everybody who takes the medicine will experience them.

Side effects of Trajenta may include:

  • Severe stomach pains
  • Yellowing of your skin or whites of your eyes (jaundice)

This is not a full list of side effects. Read the patient information leaflet for a full list of side effects associated with Trajenta.

If you experience any side effects to Trajenta, inform our doctor. You can also call the NHS' 111 helpline for advice.

While taking Trajenta on its own is unlikely to cause low blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia), you may be at an increased risk if you are taking Trajenta alongside other diabetes medicines, such as insulin.

Allergic reaction

Do not take Trajenta if you are allergic to Trajenta or any of the other ingredients of this medicine.

If you experience an allergic reaction to Trajenta, stop taking the medicine and seek emergency medical attention. Go to your nearest casualty department. Remember to take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you, so that doctors treating you know exactly what you took.

Signs of an allergic reaction include:

  • Chest tightening
  • Dry, red and cracked skin
  • Itchy, red watery eyes
  • Raised, itchy, red rash (hives)
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, eyes or face
  • Tummy pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea
  • Wheezing

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Do not take Trajenta if you are pregnant or think you might be pregnant. If you become pregnant while taking Trajenta, speak to your doctor for further advice.

Do not take Trajenta while breastfeeding.

If you become pregnant while on Trajenta, inform your doctor right away.

Other safety information

Always read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your tablets before beginning treatment.

Use the online consultation form to inform our doctors of any medicines you are currently taking, including those prescribed to you, or bought over the counter, as well as herbal and vitamin supplements.

Do not take Trajenta past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Do not throw unused medicine away via water waste. Take any unwanted or expired medicine to your pharmacy for them to dispose of safely. This can protect the environment.

Always store Trajenta out of sight and reach from children and pets.


Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I forget to take Trajenta when I should?

If you miss your daily dose of Trajenta, you can still take it if you remember later in the day. However, if you remember the next day, you should take Trajenta as usual and forget about the missed dose. You should never take a double dose to make up for a previously missed dose.

What should I do if I take too much Trajenta?

Seek immediate medical attention if you mistakenly take more than one tablet of Trajenta in a day.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Trajenta?

Avoid drinking alcohol excessively when taking Trajenta, as it may increase your risk of developing low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia).

Will Trajenta impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?

Taking Trajenta alone should not influence driving or operating tools and machinery. However, if you are also taking other antidiabetic medicines, you may develop symptoms of very low blood sugar such as dizziness, fatigue, trembling, poor concentration and vision, which may affect your ability to drive and use machinery.

Is Trajenta the same as metformin?

No, Trajenta is not the same as metformin. However, both linagliptin and metformin belong to the same class of antidiabetic drugs known as DPP-4 inhibitors.

Is Trajenta bad for your kidneys?

Clinical trials of Trajenta demonstrated that the drug did not impair renal (kidney) function. High glucose levels, however, can damage the kidneys if not treated.

Is it safe to buy Trajenta online?

As long as you use a registered online pharmacy, such as Prescription Doctor, it is safe to buy Trajenta online safely.
