The metformin has been used for weight loss. I don't know about the januvia. However if you're diabetic and on them, usually if you bring a high blood sugar down, there is weight loss.

Hello billy64. The answer is no to your question. In clinical trials/studies weight gain/weight loss is not an issue when taking Januvia. Even when taken in combination with other drugs to treat diabetes, there wasw no increase in weight. Regards pledge
