Is Janumet XR really the safest medication for diabetic?

Specializes in Endocrinology
None exists: There is no safest medications. All has side effects. Severity depends on the individual patient's characteristics. In general, you want to use the least amount of drug necessary to control your disorder. Janumet XR in general is well tolerated.
