From this study (1 week ago):
I have been experiencing jaw pain on the right side of my face, including the cheekbone area, and chest pain directly between my breasts in the sternum area. This chest pain goes through to my back. This started when I began taking Januvia for my Type 2 Diabetes about a month ago - my dosage is only 25mg.
I'm curious whether others have experienced the same problems. Thank you.
