Januvia is manufactured by Merck & Co, Inc. and is a medicine that helps control blood sugar levels for people with type 2 diabetes. It works by regulating the levels of insulin your body produces after eating. Eventually, reports of serious side effects began to surface.

  • Severe upper abdominal pain which may radiate through the back
  • Nausea and Vomiting
  • High or Low Blood Pressure
