How can I minimize the side effects of Tradjenta?

You can minimize the side effects of Tradjenta (linagliptin), a medication for type 2 diabetes, by taking it regularly as directed, following your prescribed diet and exercise program, and checking your blood sugar regularly. You may also reduce your risk for side effects by keeping your doctor informed of all other medications you are taking.

To maintain control of your blood sugar, you may need to change your Tradjenta dose if:
  • you become ill
  • have surgery, including dental surgery
  • experience unusual stress
Call your doctor if your blood sugar levels become too low or too high.
