Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “Tradjenta didn’t work for me. The side effects were severe for me. I was unable to walk without help, nausea with stomach pain, back pain was extreme, my blood sugars went up 40+, diarrhea , joint pain was terrible. Finally, got off medicine and improved.”

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “I have been on Trajenta for about a month along side metformin. Since taking Trajenta I have a permanent blocked nose and severe hand pain to the point that I cannot use my hand. I have stopped taking this medicine and hope the pain subsides. Blood sugar levels are still erratic.”

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “I have tried a few drugs now that are for type 2 Diabetes. My regular DR sent me to a specialist and she had me try Tradjenta, she said it would help me curb my hungry and such to which it did. The big down fall was that my Blood Sugar went sky rocketing I am also on Lantus pen slow release at night time. We upped my intake at night and it was even higher on fasting. I have experienced weight gain even though I am not eating as much or carbs. I have called every week with updates on the issues that I am having with no response from the DR. as of yet. I have stopped taking this drug and back to just diet and exercise and Lantus at night before bed and guess what, my BS is lower by almost 50 points and this is just one day !”

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “I have type 2 diabetes and have had severe osteoarthritis for years prior to taking Tradjenta. The one good thing about it is my doctor says it makes you feel fuller, and I’m able to verify this. I’m able to resist sugar cravings easier. However, I MUST go off this because of severe joint pain and stiffness that is unusual even by my standards. I can’t sleep or get out of bed it’s so bad. It’s so bad, I’d rather not take it and take the risk of developing kidney failure because it’s not worth it”

Tradjenta (linagliptin) for Diabetes, Type 2: “I have been type 1 diabetic for almost 30 years, My doctor felt that my blood sugars were going to low so he wanted me to try Tradjenta (tradjenta isn’t for type 1 diabetes!) Before I started taking this medicine my BS was 89, I had lunch my BS shot up to 345 & only went up from there, once my BS hit 500 I started getting sick, I quit taking Tradjenta & started taking my insulin again & can not get BS back under control & I can’t contact my doctor because he took a week’s vacation but he will hear about this when he gets back in the office. My advice is DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICINE IF YOU ARE TYPE 1 !!!!!!!!!”
