Every year, Janumet and its sister drug Januvia bring in billions of dollars for drugmaker Merck & Co. That’s because millions of people with type 2 diabetes depend on the drugs to help them control their blood sugar levels.
What many people who take Janumet don’t know is that the diabetes drug carries side effects that could have long-lasting and sometimes lethal consequences for users. Janumet has been connected to several cases of severe complications, such as debilitating joint pain, acute pancreatitis, and different kinds of cancer.
Hundreds of victims who developed complications while taking Janumet and similar type 2 diabetes drugs have come forward to hold drugmakers accountable for selling potentially deadly medications.
