Indication

Januvia (Sitagliptin) is used alone or in combination with other medications to improve blood sugar levels in adults with Type 2 Diabetes. Januvia (Sitagliptin) should be used as part of an overall diabetes management plan that includes a diet and exercise program.

Januvia (Sitagliptin) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Januvia (Sitagliptin) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here.
