In brief: Few;low blood sugar

The most common side effects of Januvia are low blood sugar and headache.
If you experience any of these side effects or any signs of being allergic to the medication (itching/rash), and they become too bothersome to manage, feel free to speak to your doctor about it, but this drug is usually very well tolerated by patients.

In brief: Potentially many

Would discuss with your doctor or pharmacist.
There are many potential side effects. The worst reported is the potential for pancreatic inflammation, though I have never seen a case.
