Januvia is a top selling brand name medication used to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes. It should not be used for the treatment of type 1 diabetes, or diabetic ketoacidosis, as Januvia would have no effect for these conditions.1

With over two billion dollars spent on Januvia last year and an estimated 20 million Americans with type 2 diabetes, Americans want and need lower prices. Annual cost for Januvia (50 mg) at my local pharmacy in New York City is $3,070.88. And that’s after asking the pharmacist for a discount coupon: without their discount it would cost $4,788!
