“Although, your health condition may impact your everyday life, do not let it define who you are.” FARXIGA (dapagliflozin) is used along with diet and exercise, and sometimes with other medications, to lower blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes (condition in which blood sugar is too high because the body does not produce or use insulin normally). Dapagliflozin is in a class of medications called sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. It lowers blood sugar by causing the kidneys to get rid of more glucose in the urine. FARXIGA (dapagliflozin) is not used to treat type 1 diabetes (condition in which the body does not produce insulin and, therefore, cannot control the amount of sugar in the blood) or diabetic ketoacidosis (a serious condition that may develop if high blood sugar is not treated). Over time, people who have diabetes and high blood sugar can develop serious or life-threatening complications, including heart disease, stroke, kidney problems, nerve damage, and eye problems. Taking FARXIGA (dapagliflozin), making lifestyle changes (e.g., diet, exercise, quitting smoking), and regularly checking your blood sugar may help to manage your diabetes and improve your health. This therapy may also decrease your chances of having a heart attack, stroke, or other diabetes-related complications such as kidney failure, nerve damage (numb, cold legs or feet; decreased sexual ability in men and women), eye problems, including changes or loss of vision, or gum disease. Your doctor and other healthcare providers will talk to you about the best way to manage your diabetes. FARXIGA (dapagliflozin) may also help you lose weight and lower high blood pressure when used with other drugs like metformin, glimepiride, insulin, or pioglitazone. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. Thanks and may you have a good understanding about this drug—FARXIGA (dapagliflozin). You may want to share this book with your family and friends who may be in need of help and would want to use this medicine. Take care, and as always, be well!
