Who should not take Onglyza?

Talk to your doctor before taking Onglyza (saxagliptin) if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney or renal conditions, type 1 diabetes, or are allergic to preservatives, foods, or dye. Onglyza is a Pregnancy Category B medication, which means it is probably safe for use while pregnant. Onglyza cannot treat type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. If you are not following a diet and exercise plan recommended by your doctor, discuss this before taking Onglyza. You should not take Onglyza if you have ever had an allergic reaction to it.
