There has been talk that Januvia is linked to cancer. Which types of cancer could Januvia cause?
Studies have shown that Januvia, and other drugs in the incretin mimetic class of drugs used to treat type 2 Diabetes have been linked to pancreatic and thyroid cancers. If there is a history of those conditions in your family, or if you have a history of pancreatitis or thyroid problems, talk to your physician about whether or not Januvia is appropriate to treat your condition.

How do I know if I am eligible to file a Januvia Lawsuit?
If you were prescribed Januvia to treat your type 2 Diabetes, took it as directed, and developed complications associated with the drug, your next move might be to file a lawsuit against Merck & Co., the drug’s manufacturer. A qualified personal injury lawyer can assess your situation and advise whether or not you qualify for compensation based on your experience with the drug.
If I file a Januvia lawsuit, how much compensation can I expect?
No two personal injury lawsuits are alike, because they are based on the severity of each plaintiff’s injuries. There is no set dollar figure when it comes to compensation; the amount will be determined based on factors like medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages suffered by the individual who was injured by the drug or medical device in question.
Have any Januvia lawsuits gone to trial? Have there been any settlements?
At present, there are many Januvia lawsuits pending, but so far, none have gone to trial. Moreover, Merck, the drug’s manufacturer, has not yet offered to settle with any plaintiffs. If you are considering filing a Januvia lawsuit, it is best to speak to a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. Read more.
