There are risks with any medicine but your doctor must think that the side effects shouldn't affect you. Please discuss with your doctor if you still have concerns.
Saxagliptin is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. It works by regulating the levels of insulin your body produces after eating.
Saxagliptin is for people with type 2 diabetes (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes. Saxagliptin is sometimes used in combination with other diabetes medications, but is not for treating type 1 diabetes.
