"A patent currently prohibits any generic Januvia from being manufactured and sold. The earliest that an approved generic version of Januvia could become available is in 2017, when the patent expires. Until an approved generic version of Januvia is available, you should be wary of so-called "generic Januvia" offered for sale over the Internet."
