The numbness in your lower legs and hands is not due to the medicine. It is a progression of your diabetes called diabetic neuropathy. It happens when high blood sugar levels damage the nerve endings. Mood swings can be caused by varying blood sugar levels as well. The Dr probably wants to add Januvia to get a better control on your blood sugars.
