Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Been on Tradjenta for 10 days. Daily blood checks show an increase of 40 points, up to 163, higher than I ever had before on Onglyza which was hurting my kidneys. Disappointed, because I am hard-core compliant."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I take metformin/glipizide and my doctor added tradjenta 5mg. I took it and within an hour I was dizzy, had bad headache for over 12 hours, back pain and nausea. It did lower my blood sugar a little but these side effects were overwhelming. Not going to continue with this medication."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I have been on 5 mg Trajenta a day for about a month. My levels have gone from 130 and up to less than 120, with lower numbers in the 80's (which I NEVER had before). No side effects yet. Not sure if my insurance covers Trajenta as my doctor gave me free samples to get started. But now that I'll be getting a prescription, my doctor gave me a "savings card" from Trajenta that is supposed to lower the cost to as little as $10 a month. Haven't had to use it yet tho, so I don't know exactly what I'll be paying."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "On tradjenta after being forced off my januvia by my insurance company. Taken for 2 days now, and it seems not to be working. Testing at about 500 two hours after meals, has yet to come down below 250. Going back to doctors in 2 weeks if there is no change."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I was taking Januvia, but my insurance will no longer cover it so I was then switched to Trajenta. I take 5mg Trajenta with Metformin daily. My blood sugar is not as low or stable as it was with the Januvia and I am having very bad muscle and joint pain, severe headaches, back pain and weakness. I never had these symptoms previously so it must be the Trajenta. I never associated the problems to this medication until I read an article on it. I will be contacting my doctor regarding this medication."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I got metformin intolerance & was not believed by doctors so I took pics extremely heavy nose bleeding & so then they said stop metformin, take tradjenta 25mg with gliclazide 40mg twice a day. The Tradjenta took about two days to work, then I took it 3pm with blood sugars 8.2 and in one hour I got a drop to 4.3. Since then I have noticed afternoon headaches, dizzyness, back pain but still taking them as they reduce my blood sugar with effort, stop me dozing after eating. I do get slight tenderness around pancreas but usually stop the Tradjenta for two days & restart. I find the gliclazide irritates my pancreas and stomach more. Overall very good product shame we can only take once a day."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for : "My blood sugars were doing good at first but now being my second month they are higher than they ever have been. Not sure what is going on and am having some on and off abdominal pain. Such a bummer I want it to work so I don't have to inject every time I eat. I have mody 2 diabetes so it is different than type one or two."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "My blood sugar has slowly been decreasing. Each time I check it points are dropping. I'm pretty sure it's the medicine because I've not really changed anything else. My sugar is usually high hardly ever low so I'm more hyperglycemia."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "This broke my appetite especially for junk food. Lost weight at 5mg/day. Made neck skinny! Increases the potency of gliperide. Only take 2.5mg Trajenta and 5mg gliperide with pill cutter. 90-100 blood sugar with much decreased spikes after meals, almost as if it repaired my body's regulation. Exercise daily. Better than Metformin, can have 1 beer now. Gas is worst current issue (from gliperide)."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Using Tradjenta as a Byetta replacement. Byetta never lowered blood glucose but made me feel much better. Tradjenta similar to Byetta also gives me good energy and non-sick feeling. No feeling of constantly having to urinate. Not sleepy after meals. Take Tradjenta with metformin and have also used insulin Apidra, but insulin doesn't seem to help me much. Only on day 5 but noticed the positive effects after day one."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "Interesting results which vary from day to day. Have had higher than usual blood sugar readings on some days. Have taken Tradjenta only 3 weeks. Deleted almost all carbs from diet and had better blood sugar results. 124 vs. 143 upon rising. Also eat an earlier dinner, and no snacking after dinner. Resulted in 124 reading in morning. Will take for a month and decide if I will continue."

For Diabetes, Type 2: "I have not had adverse reactions. I find that it effectively drops my blood sugar significantly and effectively. I also use metformin but it is the extended release type. Linagliptin is great as I take it first thing in the morning before breakfast. Metformin always needs to be taken with food which is not always convenient. I know people on regular Metformin can become dizzy because their blood sugar went too low without enough food. To anyone on this medicine, especially for the first month, I would measure blood sugar several times throughout the day to see if your blood sugar dips too low."

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: "I have only been on it for about 4 days. I noticed I have been feeling dizzy. Not sure whats causing it. I take Tradjenta with Metformin. I am hoping this medicine works but saw something if your planning on becoming pregnant not to take it. Some days I wonder if insulin would be better."
