If pancreatitis is suspected, Januvia should promptly be discontinued and appropriate management should be initiated. Dosage adjustment should be recommended in patients with moderate or severe renal insufficiency and in patients with ESRD. Assessment of renal function
should recommend prior to initiating Janvia (Sitagliptin). When Janvia is used in combination with sulfonylurea or with insulin, medications known to cause hypoglycemia, a lower dose of sulfonylurea or insulin may be required to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia. If a hypersensitivity reaction is suspected, Janvia should discontinued.
