 1  type 2 diabetes itching with no visible rash, burning skin, felt like nerve endings under the skin were inflamed. Started the Onglyza after Januvia had the same effect of itching skin. Did lower glucose levels better than Januvia. The itching caused by the Onglyza caused me to stop taking it after a month. The itching was intolerable. Needed to take steroids to fight the hypersensitivity reaction F 56 30 days

ONGLYZA  (SAXAGLIPTIN HYDROCHLORIDE):  Saxagliptin is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Proper control of diabetes may also lessen your risk of a heart attack or stroke. Saxagliptin works by increasing levels of natural substances called incretins. Incretins help to control blood sugar by increasing insulin release, especially after a meal. They also decrease the amount of sugar your liver makes.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
