My husband just recently stopped Januvia 100mg 1xday because of it raising his B.G to very unacceptable high levels! While on the Januvia he experienced all kinds of terrible side effects. Now he is only taking an insulin shot of Lantus @ night time and two Glipizides 10mg in the morning. His B.G is much better now. The side effects he was having are already subsiding. We were just wondering if there might be any withdraws from stopping the Januvia like there are with many other medications. Thank You, for any information you have that you care to share.

I was on Januvia for 6 years... when I had to stop it, I hurt so bad in my liver area. The pain was like a knife and similar to having gallstones. This all went away about one week later.
Now with a year break the Doctor have placed me back on Januvia and my liver area hurts but not the same as before. My liver is swollen and my kidneys are in trouble. Kinda a mess for me right now. Looking for answers.
No, no withdrawals.
