Brief Answer:
No, Jalra doesn't cause periarthritis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir, I had gone through your query and understood your concerns.

Sir, Jalra 50 is a medicine that contains the active substance vildagliptin. It is very effective drug for controlling blood sugar levels in Diabetes.

As of now there is no such(Periarthritis) a side effect registered with this drug. Jalra doesn't cause that. Optisulin is a nutrition supplement which doesn't cause that.

The most probable reason could be age related. It would better to take an X-ray and get investigated whether any changes in the joint occurred. Physiotherapy may also help you sir.

Doctor sir,
Thank you for the clarification. We have taken X-ray and MRI of the joint. The result shows no deterioration in the joint. The report only indicates fluid accumulation and primary periartharitis. In the internet I saw that if Jalra is taken alone there may be joint pain as side effect. That is why I wanted to know the answer.Kindly suggest me whether I can go back to Amryl tablets. I also take Karela( bitter guard) juice in the morning in the empty stomach. This has shown good result for me earlier. Can I continue this also. ps answer

Brief Answer:
Yes you can continue the same medication

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir, welcome back.

Sir, As far as standards of drug jalra, no such side effect.

Any way to control diabetes, and taking your concern about the side effect in to consideration, I have no objection for you to continue amaryl. As it is also very effective drug. Bitter guard juice also helps you in controlling sugar levels.

You can continue that medication.
