Januvia, which is generically known as Sitagliptin, is an anti-diabetes drug developed and marketed by Merck. Although this drug has fewer side effects such as hypoglycemia and weight gain, there are some serious concerns about its adverse effects. Although clinical tests did not reveal any adverse effects, the Food and Drug Administration has recently notified the public of acute pancreatitis that might be caused by the use of Januvia.
Januvia side effects include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Acute Pancreatitis
- Cutaneous Vasculitis
- Hemorrhagic Pancreatitis
- Nectrotizing Pancreatitis
If you believe you have developed pancreatitis as a result of taking Januvia, you should seek medical help immediately. Some warning signs of this life-threatening illness include: severe abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, and tenderness of the abdomen.
If you have developed pancreatitis after taking Januvia, alternatively known as Janumet, you should contact one of our attorneys at this Januvia law firm, and schedule a free consultation to discuss your options.
