Janumet XR Information
Janumet XR tablets are taken when a person has type 2 diabetes. It contains two active ingredients: sitagliptin and metformin hydrochloride extended-release. Sitagliptin is an active inhibitor of the dipeptidyl peptidase-4 enzyme (DPP-4 enzyme) and used to coat the extended-release metformin hydrochloride core tablet. Each tablet contains 64.25mg sitagliptin phosphate monohydrate, which is equal to 50mg sitagliptin as free base. It may either have 500mg metformin hydrochloride extended-release or 1000mg metformin hydrochloride extended-release. It should be combined with diet and exercise to work properly.
The recommended daily dose is 100mg sitagliptin and 2000mg metformin hydrochloride extended release. Don’t take a larger dose than this unless advised to do so by the doctor. If you are not on metformin now, the recommended starting dose for you is 100mg/1000mg. To reduce gastrointestinal side effects due to metformin, your dose can be increased to the maximum daily dose: 100mg/2000mg.
If being treated with metformin now, your recommended daily starting dose is 100mg sitagliptin and the dose of metformin hydrochloride that was previously recommended. If taking metformin immediate-release tablets, 850mg or 1000mg two times a day, your best beginning dose is 50mg sitagliptin, 1000mg metformin HCL once daily.
When switching from Janumet (sitagliptin/metformin HCL immediate-release tablets) to Janumet XR (sitagliptin/metformin HCL extended-release tablets), or vice-versa, maintain the same maximum daily dose.
Eat before taking your tablets to avoid gastrointestinal side effects caused by metformin. Swallow it whole instead of chewing, splitting or crushing it.
Potential side effects may include:
- Upper respiratory infection
- Abdominal pain.
If these side effects become worse, consult your doctor. If you notice other adverse side effects, get in touch with your doctor.

- Liver disease like cirrhosis, hepatitis or liver failure
