Januvia (sitagliptin) is a prescription medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The drug is part of a class of diabetes medication called dipeptidyl peptidase inhibitors. Currently, Januvia is the only dipeptidyl peptidase inhibitor available.
However there are many drugs available to treat type 2 diabetes, but it is highly recommended not to change the prescription with consulting a doctor/specialist, hope this helps?
