General Information on Tradjenta
Tradjenta is an oral diabetes treatment drug with the generic name linagliptin. This medicine regulates insulin levels in the body that increase after eating.
You can buy Tradjenta for the treatment of type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetes. Tradjenta is often prescribed as just a part of a complete diabetes maintenance and treatment program, which would include diet and exercise.
Tradjenta is not suitable for treating type 1 diabetes.

In rare cases, Tradjenta may cause severe side effects that would require immediate medical attention. Some of these severe side effects are given below:
- Sore throat, headache and fever, along with red skin rash, peeling and blistering of skin
- Pancreatitis, which is characterized by severe upper abdominal pain that spreads to the back, vomiting, nausea, appetite loss and rapid heart rate

In extremely rare cases, Tradjenta may trigger an allergic reaction characterized by hives, breathing problems and swollen face or throat. You cannot buy Tradjenta if you have previously suffered from an allergy to linagliptin or if you are suffering from a condition known as diabetic ketoacidosis.
Dosage of Tradjenta
The dosage and duration of treatment with Tradjenta would be determined by your doctor, and you must follow the prescribed treatment schedule accordingly. Your doctor may change your dosage of Tradjenta from time to time to achieve the best efficacy.
In most cases, only one tablet of Tradjenta is taken a day, and it can be taken on an empty or full stomach. Your doctor would recommend the best time of day to take Tradjenta. Your blood sugar levels would have to be monitored regularly while you are on Tradjenta, and you may need to undergo certain medical tests from time to time.
Tradjenta may cause hypoglycemia at times, and you must be able to recognize such signs when they occur. These signs would include headache, sweating, weakness, hunger, concentration trouble and irritability. You must keep some source of sugar with you at all times to treat hypoglycemia. Such sources may be hard candy, glucose tablets or gel, orange juice or milk. Your doctor may recommend a glucagon injection kit for such emergencies.
You must monitor your blood sugar levels very closely and carefully if you are not feeling well, under stress, travel, exercise too much, skip meals, or drink alcohol.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
