Hi there!

Sitagliptin is a long acting enzyme inhibitor with a half life on 8-14 hours. However due to lower efficacy, it is often combined with other oral hypoglycemic for adequate blood sugar control. If the blood sugar levels are not controlled with the combinations, I would advise seeking a review with your treating endocrinologist for a dose adjustment or change to other medications. Also diet control and lifestyle changes including regular exercise are important as a part of complete management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
