Is it ok to take Januvia and Victoza at the same time everyday, or should they be separated?

I myself would not take both together. They work in the same way. And are both black boxed warning. I'm thinking that would increas the chance of bad side effects. And the cancers it may cause.

This can be intentional in cases where drugs with similar actions are used together for demonstrated therapeutic benefit. It can also be unintentional in cases where a patient has been treated by more than one doctor, or had prescriptions filled at more than one pharmacy, and can have potentially adverse consequences.
