I have been on Januvia for 2 weeks and just started getting a rash and itch all over. Is this from the Januvia? Any help is appreciated:)

Hi ceebee,
 
I haven't experienced this with Januvia. I usually see drug side effects as soon as I start taking he med. I tend to be dry and somewhat itchy this time of year- but no rashes. You should probably go see your doctor- please let me know what you find out. It's not listed on my insert - sandy

Hi gelchick:)

I was at doctors today for all the new blood work(I have to go back Monday because the lab girl forgot to take the urine sample) and then I see the doctor Thursday. The doctor called to say to stop Januvia to see if it helps the itch.I don't want to until I see if it goes away while on Januvia and it is already getting better. I had a really bad experience with a doctor last month and I think it is nerves as I am really apprehensive about doctors now. This doctor was a real jerk and I wouldn't let him treat my dog. So, I am staying on the Januvia as it seems to be a good drug for me so far and I agree that if it was the Januvia, it would have started sooner. I will let you know what happens. I also dropped 5 pounds from Sunday morning to Monday morning. Come Spring, I told DH I will need new clothes:)

Ceebee,

I have been taking Januvia for one week and have developed a blister type rash on the tops of my forearms. I also am having problems with sinus infections and headaches with pain in the nasal cavity and a return of migraines since I started the med and all over joint pain. Needless to say, I have discontinued it.

Have any others experienced the same symptoms?

I have been taking Januvia since the end of April- I have had no side effects from it. It's worked great for me too. Some others here have reported they they have seen some nasal congestion/sinus issues- but not blisters-
