I am taking Januvia 100 mg , one tablet a day. Is there any other less expensive medicine that I can take in lieu of this.

You may be able to reduce your medication by eating sensibly. Keep your carbohydrate intake between 10 and 14 portions per day (1 portion = 10g carbohydrate), ideally 3 meals x 4 carb portions. uk.sitestat.com/diabetes/we...

Eat low GI carbs glycemicindex.com/

Make up the balance of your meals with natural, additive-free, unprocessed protein and fat foods.

I agree with the idea that reducing cost of medicines is only through reducing sugar levels.Thereby you can reduce the dosages gradually and may be,one day you will be rid of all medications.We can certainly hope that happens.

I have also faced the same problem and on enquiry was told that therea re no cheaper alternatives.

please stay away from this drug since it has been linked recently with chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic carcinoma.

swith to

Metformin the cheapest and free from side effects

I have read some where that tablet Januvia causes Cancer? Is it true?

agreed, Metformin, it's ideal but consult few specialists too.
