Jentadueto

Jentadueto is a medication that treats patients with type 2 diabetes. When diet and exercise alone are not enough to keep the amount of sugar in the blood at a suitable level, patients with diabetes may take tablets such as Jentadueto as well to achieve this goal. This medicine may be used at the same time as other treatments for diabetes and it helps manage sugar levels in the body to protect patients from developing serious health issues.

What is Jentadueto?

Jentadueto tablets are a treatment for type 2 diabetes. They are taken when a patient’s pancreas is unable to make enough insulin to keep the amount of sugar in the blood at a healthy level. Jentadueto is usually taken in addition to diet and exercise as part of a patient’s programme to reduce the sugar in the body. Without these efforts, type 2 diabetes can cause serious health problems with your eyes, heart and nervous system.

How does Jentadueto work?

This medication contains two key ingredients which are called Linagliptin and Metformin. These two substances work together to improve the body’s process of producing insulin after a meal, in order to reduce the amount of sugar made by your body.

In ordinary circumstances, the pancreas is able to produce enough insulin to keep sugar in the body at a normal, healthy amount. When suffering type 2 diabetes, however, the pancreas can’t produce enough insulin naturally to manage sugar correctly. That’s why the treatment from Jenatadueto is valuable to patients. The tablets can be taken alongside other medicines that treat diabetes, such as sulphonylureas and empagliflozin.

How do I take Jentadueto?

Always take this medicine as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. The exact dose you’ll take will depend on your condition and how much of similar medicines you use. The typical instructions are to take a tablet (in the dose prescribed by your doctor) on two occasions per day. It’s preferable to take these tablets with meals to lower your change of an upset stomach.

These tablets should be taken for as long as your doctor prescribes it to you so that blood sugar levels can be kept under control. You should also continue you take other diabetes medicine prescribed to you and maintain a suitable diet during treatment.

What are the side effects of Jentadueto?

Jentadueto can cause side effects, but the vast majority of potential side effects are rare, so chances are you won’t notice any. The most commonly reported side effects from users of this treatment are diarrhoea and blood enzyme increase. These symptoms should not last long if they do crop up, but speak to your doctor if they do last an unusually long time.

Some of the rare side effects can be very serious and will require you to seek medical attention right away if they do occur. Stop taking Jentadueto and contact your doctor or nearest hospital immediately if you experience any of the following:

  • Symptoms of low blood sugar (hypoglycaemia) which include trembling, sweating, anxiety, blurred vision, tingling lips, paleness, mood changes or confusion
  • Inflammation of the pancreas with symptoms including severe and persistent pain in the abdomen which might reach through to your back, as well as nausea and vomiting
  • Lactic acidosis, which is a very rare but very serious condition where the body produces too much lactic acid. Potential signs of this condition include disorientation, jaundice, breathing problems and a rapid heart rate.
  • An allergic reaction with swelling around the face, a skin rash and/or possible wheezing and shortness of breath

Can I take Jentadueto?

Before you start taking Jentadueto tablets, you should be sure that there aren’t any circumstances regarding your health or other medication you’re using that could cause complications. You should avoid taking this treatment if any of the following applies to you:

  • You have severely reduced kidney function
  • You have liver problems
  • You have uncontrolled diabetes with severe hyperglycaemia (high blood glucose) or ketoacidosis
  • You have previously had a diabetic pre-coma
  • You have a severe infection which could lead to kidney problems
  • You are suffering from dehydration due to long-lasting or severe diarrhoea or you have vomited several times in a row
  • You are being treated for acute heart failure or have recently had a heart attack
  • You drink an excessive amount of alcohol, whether that’s every day or just from time to time
  • You have type 1 diabetes (Jentadueto is not designed to treat this)
  • You are below the age of 18

Speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice on what to do if any of the above applies to you. You should also speak to one of them if you are currently taking any other medication. Some other diabetes medicines can be taken alongside Jentadueto, but certain medicines that treat other conditions could be affected or disrupt the effects of Jentadueto. It’s important to mention if the medicines you’re taking now include any of these:

  • Diuretics that increase urine production
  • Medicines which treat pain and inflammation (such as ibuprofen or celecoxib)
  • Certain medicines for treating high blood pressure (including ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor antagonists)
  • Medicines that could change the amount of metformin in your blood, especially if you have reduced kidney function (examples include rifampicin and cimetidine)
  • Medicines that treat diseases that involve inflammation, such as asthma and arthritis (corticosteroids)
  • Bronchodilators (treats bronchial asthma)
  • Rifampicin (treats infections such as tuberculosis)
  • Carbamazepine
  • Phenobarbital
  • Phenytoin
  • Medicines that contain alcohol

What if I take too much Jentadueto?

If you accidentally take more of this medication than you’re meant to, then you’re more likely to experience side effects associated with this treatment. One of the side effects which becomes more likely is lactic acidosis, which is normally very rare when you take Jentadueto as instructed. It is a very serious condition which can cause a wide range of symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, severe tiredness and reduced body temperature.

What if I forget to take Jentadueto?

If you forget to take a dose of this medication, then take it as soon as you remember it, unless it is nearly time for the next dose to be taken. If this is the case, then simply skip the forgotten dose and take the next one at the usual time. Never take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed dose.
