Who should not take Janumet?

People who are allergic to sitagliptin or metformin (the active ingredients in Janumet) should not take Janumet. Additionally, people with kidney disease, liver disease, pancreatitis, or active diabetic ketoacidosis should not take Janumet. Injected dyes used for radiological testing can have adverse interactions with Janumet: if you need this type of test, you will need to temporarily stop taking Janumet under your doctor’s supervision. Janumet is not for people with type 1 diabetes or for people who require insulin injections.
