Linagliptin 5 mg


Linagliptin 5 mg is an oral medication used to manage type 2 diabetes mellitus. It belongs to a class of drugs known as DPP-4 inhibitors, which help to regulate blood sugar levels. Linagliptin works by increasing the levels of incretin hormones in the body, which in turn stimulates the release of insulin and decreases the production of glucose by the liver. This helps to lower blood sugar levels, particularly after meals.

Side Effects:-

  • Hypoglycemia: While linagliptin itself does not usually cause low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), it can occur when linagliptin is used in combination with other diabetes medications like insulin or sulfonylureas. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include sweating, shakiness, dizziness, hunger, and confusion.
  • Pancreatitis: Linagliptin has been associated with an increased risk of pancreatitis. Symptoms of pancreatitis include severe and persistent abdominal pain, nausea, and vomiting. If these symptoms occur, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately.
  • Allergic Reactions: Some people may experience allergic reactions to linagliptin, such as rash, itching, or swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat. Severe allergic reactions can lead to difficulty breathing and require immediate medical attention.
  • Nasopharyngitis: A common side effect of linagliptin is nasopharyngitis, which includes symptoms like a runny or stuffy nose and sore throat. These symptoms are generally mild and tend to resolve on their own.
  • Arthralgia: Joint pain (arthralgia) has been reported in some patients taking linagliptin. If joint pain becomes severe or persistent, patients should consult their healthcare provider.


Linagliptin 5 mg is indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in adults. It is used alongside diet and exercise to improve glycemic control. Linagliptin can be used as monotherapy or in combination with other diabetes medications such as metformin, sulfonylureas, or insulin, depending on the patient’s needs and the severity of their diabetes.
