Can Metformin, Glyburide and Januvia be taken together?

Hi my husband & I have been taking metformin 1000 mg twice a day plus glyburide 2/ 5mg twice a day & now our dr, just added Genuvia once a day, which is helping us better at keeping our blood sugar levels down, but were wondering if this is too many Meds, & maybe we should cut out one of them out?
