Not sure if truly effective...
 

Pros: It hasn't made a difference to me.

Cons: Not sure how it really works in combination to my Actos and Metformin XR AND insulin treatment...

Overall: Have been on Januvia 3 different times in the last 5 years - I feel it does not help in my meds cocktail. My older cousin was on it for 2 year sand felt the same way.
