PEDIATRIC USE:

Safety and effectiveness of Sitagliptin in pediatric patients under 18 years of age have not been established.

GERIATRIC USE:

No overall differences in safety or effectiveness were observed between subjects over 65 years. The drug is

excreted by the kidney. Because elderly patients are more likely to have decreased renal function, care should

be taken in dose selection in the elderly.

SIDE EFFECTS:

Adverse reactions like upper respiratory tract infection, nasopharyngitis, and headache can occur. Hypoglyce-

mia occurs in patients treated with the combination of Sitagliptin and Sulfonylurea, with or without Metformin.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

Hypersensitivity reactions such as anaphylaxis, angioedema, and exfoliative skin conditions including

Stevens-Johnson syndrome can occur.

USE IN PREGNANCY & LACTATION:

Pregnancy: Pregnancy Category B. Safety of Sitagliptin in pregnant women has not been established.

Sitagliptin should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk of the fetus.

Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether Sitagliptin is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are

excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Sitagliptin is administered to a nursing woman.
