Levemir and Januvia

My Doctor put me on Levemir a short time ago and I am also on Metformin HCL and Januvia. I was always told that Januvia wasn"t to be use if you take Insulin. Will this causes be some more health issues. I really need this question answered.

Hi there!

Aside the risk of hypoglycemia, there is no specific contraindication of taking the two medications together. If these have been advised to be taken together by your treating doctor, these may be required for appropriate glycemic control. I would suggest discussing the situation and the suggested management plan in detail with your treating doctor.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!
