Janumet - Overview

Janumet is a combination medication used to help improve glycemic control in some people with type 2 diabetes as an adjunct to diet and exercise. People who need a Janumet prescription can connect with medical providers through Push Health who can prescribe Janumet medication, including Janumet 50 / 1000 mg, Janumet 50 / 500 mg and Janumet XR tablets, when appropriate to do so.

What Is Janumet?

Janumet prescription medication is a combination of two different medications - a biguanide medication known as metformin (Glucophage) and the active drug in the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor sitagliptin (Januvia). The co-administration of these medications in Janumet is thought to provide significant improvements to A1c, FPG, and 2-hour PPG levels when compared to the individual components alone or to a placebo. These effects suggest that Janumet utilizes both medications to exert its effects and is not surprising given that Janumet combination tablets are bioequivalent to the doses of the individual medications comprising the Janumet tablet. The bioavailability of Janumet's ingredients is over 50% and the pharmacokinetics of the individual components of Janumet medication are not meaningfully altered when they are co-administered through Janumet pills.

Janumet - Coupon and Dosage

Janumet is an expensive medication when paid for out of pocket, costing over $7 per Janumet 50 mg / 1000 mg tablet. Janumet coupons are available online from various sources and some insurance plans may cover costs related to a Janumet prescription. Janumet is available as Janumet 50 / 500 and Janumet 50 / 1000. Janumet is often prescribed twice daily with meals but the dosage and administration depends on the prescriber.
