Janumet contains a combination of metformin and sitagliptin. Metformin and sitagliptin are oral diabetes medicines that help control blood sugar levels.

Metformin works by decreasing glucose (sugar) production in the liver and decreasing absorption of glucose by the intestines. Sitagliptin works by regulating the levels of insulin your body produces after eating.

Janumet is used together with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

    Good price, shipped quick as promised (got stuck in US customs for two weeks, but that is not their fault) and the medication is high quality. Thanks for your service. I hope the FDA doesn’t mess with our ability to buy meds from India!
