    I started taking linagliptin about 6 weeks ago. I have started to notice that I get extremely tired by bedtime , while I do have a long day and a baby to look after and work which would naturally make very tired, I'm noticing it's more like I'm knock out and a bit drugged up tired.

    I am also on metformin which I've been on for way over a year with no problems at all so I don't think it is that.

    I'm wondering if it's the linagliptin and wondered if anyone has experienced the same sort of tiredness

    Hello @Rosieroo - One of the side effects of Linagliptin is unusual tiredness and fatigue.
    Read the accompanying leaflet that came with the drug and you will see a list of side effects.
