Who should not take Januvia?

Do not take Januvia if you have type 1 diabetes or if you have an allergic reaction to the medication’s active ingredient, sitagliptin, or any inactive ingredients. Symptoms of a severe allergic reaction may be hives (red skin patches), a rash, extensive swelling of the face or inside the mouth or throat that causes breathing problems. While it is not known if Januvia harms an unborn child, if you are pregnant, consult with your doctor regarding any precautions to take. Also, it is not known if this medication travels into breast milk, so if you breastfeed, discuss this with your doctor for guidance. Januvia should not be given to children under 18 years, unless advised by the doctor.
