How will the Janumet XR help?

For individuals with type II diabetes. Take Janumet XR in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise to control blood sugar levels for best results.

How does Janumet XR work?

The human body naturally produces insulin. Janumet XR helps your pancreas produce more insulin. Insulin helps regulate blood sugar. Two anti-diabetic medications, sitagliptin and metformin, are combined in each tablet to better control your blood sugar.
Sitagliptin is a member of a class of drugs known as DPP-4 inhibitors (dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors), which work to increase the amount of insulin that your body produces when your blood sugar is too high, especially after eating. Additionally, sitagliptin aids in reducing the quantity of sugar your body produces and is less likely to result in hypoglycemia, a typical adverse effect of antidiabetic 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.

A typical dosage for those who are not already taking metformin is 500 mg of metformin and 50 mg of sitagliptin taken twice a day orally. A typical dose for someone is 50mg of sitagliptin.
