Linagliptin has half life of more than 12 hours and prolonged duration of action Therefore, it is given in once a day regimen Though it can be given as 2.5 mg BD dose, but it is more convenient to give as once a day dose, this will reduce forgotten dosage and increase compliance of patient for taking medicine
