Byetta & Januvia
Perscription Byetta & Januvia for Type 2 Diabetes
Byetta and Januvia are medications for diabetes that have historically been prescribed to treat adults with type 2 diabetes.
Unfortunately, these medications have been linked to serious, life-threatening side effects including acute hemorrhagic and/or necrotizing pancreatitis and in some cases pancreatic cancer.
Byetta is used to treat type 2 diabetes symptoms and is injected into the skin.
By combining the drug with exercise and a proper diet, it is designed to help control blood sugar levels and also helps the pancreas to produce insulin more efficiently through the body.
The insulin helps to move sugar in the blood to other body tissues where energy is needed.
Byetta slows down the stomach digestive process and causes a decrease in appetite.
If you have previously had a kidney disease, problems with your digestion, or a history of pancreatitis, you should discuss recent medical research on this drug and your use of these specific drug, with your doctor.
Side effects of Byetta & Januvia include:
- weight gain
- shortness of breath
- a dull pain in lower/middle back
- severe pain in upper stomach that spreads to the back
