      At 60 years of age, I had recently been diagnosed with Diabetes Type 2 with a count over 400, with normal being around 100. Wanting to quickly lower my number, my doctor finally had prescribed Janumet 50/1000 MG for me twice a day (morning and at night) after I had already been on other diabetic medicines with very slow lowering of my

      numbers. This was used in a combination with Actos 45 MG once a day which I had also been on before with my other diabetic medications.

      I had to monitor my sugar four times a day for several months until the numbers not only went down but stayed down. By the time I had been on the medicine for one year, my ...


      • numbers were down to 100 and I was only monitoring my sugar early in the morning after a long time fast. When I talked to my doctor about going on a lower-priced diabetic medicine, she said I would never be able to control my diabetes the way I needed without taking Janumet. Without it, I probably would have died or had to
        take shots all the time to control my diabetes.

        At the time of my diagnosis, I had just had a major abdomen surgery and had not been able to work for two years. With no money and unable to afford any medication, the Janumet prescribers worked with me and sent me one year of free medication until I could get on my feet.

    It runs about 118 to 130, depending on my diet. Foods that help lower it the most are beans, cinnamon and avacodos.

    I would advise you not to. That is a question your pharmacist can help you with. Possibly he can give you two pills at 500 each, but it would still need to be through a prescription. I take it you are having trouble swallowing it? I have to take mine with milk, as it slides down better, or even V8 or tomato juice. I now take my Janumet along with Metformin, which is a huge pill, and I use milk or chocolate milk or breakfast drink.

    One of the lesser side effects of the Januvia meds is anxiety, which would cause sleep issues. The dosage could be adjusted or you could switch to Metformin (which is cheaper and causes some morning nausea - grand if you wish to lose weight). My doctor suggested eating some cheese at night if my sugar was low at bedtime, with the low number causing a high reading in the morning.

    Can I use Janumet 1000/50 cut into half and then use half in morning and half in evening?

    Please consult your doctor before doing that. You should not tweak with the prescription on your own. The doctor has prescribed the dose after seeing your medical reports.

    If you are having difficulty in swallowing the tablet - which seems to be the reason - you should ask the doctor about solution.
