The tablet contains two prescription medicines, Sitagliptin and Metformin.
The oral prescription medication Janumet XR Tablets can lower the blood sugar levels of type 2 diabetes in adults. Sitagliptin and Metformin are two prescription drugs found in tablets.

How will Janumet XR tablets help?

The drug helps individuals with type II diabetes. However, for best results, Janumet XR tablets should be taken with a healthy diet and regular exercise to control blood sugar levels.

How do Janumet XR tablets work?

The human body naturally produces insulin. Janumet XR tablets help your pancreas produce more insulin. Insulin helps regulate blood sugar. Two anti-diabetic medications, sitagliptin and metformin, are combined in each tablet to control your blood sugar better.

Sitagliptin is a member of a class of drugs known as DPP-4 inhibitors (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors), which increase the amount of insulin your body produces when your blood sugar is too high, especially after eating. Additionally, sitagliptin aids in reducing the quantity of sugar your body has and is less likely to result in hypoglycemia, a typical adverse effect of anti-diabetic medications.

Metformin decreases the amount of sugar your liver produces and is a member of the class of drugs known as biguanides.

Together, these medications assist you in achieving your objective of improved blood sugar regulation.

How do I take Janumet XR tablets?

  • Take the medication orally with a meal. A doctor will prescribe the dosage of medication.
  • Do not take Janumet XR tablets if you are already prescribed metformin or any combination of metformin and sitagliptin.
  • If you are not already taking Metformin along with a sulfonylurea drug, you can take Janumet XR Tablets with your medication.
  • You can take Junamet along with premixed or long-to-intermediate-acting insulin.
  • Janumet XR tablets can be taken with pioglitazone only if you are not currently using metformin and pioglitazone.
  • Janumet XR tablets should be taken with meals to reduce your risk of experiencing an upset stomach.

Note: Do not cut or break the tablets before consuming them; consume them whole. Continue to take Janumet XR tablets as long as your doctor instructs you to. After that, it’s necessary to take each dose as prescribed.

What is the dosage of Janumet XR tablets?

Different people may require different dosages. Be sure to take your medication precisely as per your doctor’s instructions. Your dosage will depend on your present lifestyle, your tolerance, and the drug’s efficacy. The highest daily dose is 2000 mg of metformin and 100 mg of sitagliptin administered orally. A typical dosage for those not already taking metformin is 500 mg of metformin and 50 mg of sitagliptin taken twice a day orally. Therefore, a regular dose for someone is 50mg of sitagliptin. In addition to taking metformin, this medication is taken orally twice daily. For those already on a high daily dose of metformin, 1000 mg of metformin and 50 mg of sitagliptin, taken twice a day orally, are advised.

Note: Do not alter the medication your doctor has prescribed if you find something different from the ones listed here. It would be best if you took this medication strictly, as your doctor has advised.
