JANUMET XR and Weight Gain
Will I Gain Weight From Taking JANUMET XR?
When used by itself, JANUMET XR is not likely to cause weight gain.
Keeping at a healthy weight is an important part of taking care of your diabetes. A healthy weight is good for your heart and can help control your blood sugar levels.
Prescription JANUMET XR tablets contain sitagliptin (the medicine in JANUVIA®) and extended-release metformin.
In clinical studies, most patients taking sitagliptin and immediate-release metformin tablets did not gain weight.
Your doctor may prescribe JANUMET XR alone or together with certain other diabetes medicines to help control blood sugar. Take JANUMET XR exactly as your doctor prescribes and follow your doctor's treatment plan for healthy eating and exercise.
