Linagliptin Side Effects

Commonly reported linagliptin side effects include a sore throat and a runny or stuffy nose. Other problems can include weight gain and coughing. While these problems generally require little or no treatment, potentially serious reactions are possible. If you experience more serious side effects, such as seizures, confusion, or difficulty breathing, notify your healthcare provider right away.

An Introduction to Side Effects of Linagliptin

Just like any medicine, linagliptin (Tradjenta™) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
 
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with linagliptin. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
