What is Farxiga (Dapagliflozin) 5mg?
Farxiga is an oral hypoglycemic drug that is only available through a prescription. It has dapagliflozin, a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor, that blocks sugar reabsorption in the kidneys. Farxiga 5mg tablets is supplied with 30 tablets per pack.
What is it used for?
Farxiga is used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus and is meant to be used alongside proper diet and adequate exercise.Farxiga can be used more optimally when combined with other forms of antidiabetic medications, such as metformin, sulfonylureas, and insulin. That being said, there is a need for a lower dose with these medications, as there is a higher chance of hypoglycemia when used together.
Why use this medication?
Farxiga is used because it can be conveniently given in the morning with or without food. Studies have also confirmed its efficacy to lower HbA1C levels significantly (about 1.0%). It can also potentially give rise to other forms of beneficial effects, such as weight reduction by about 3% and lower systolic blood pressure.
Farxiga is an effective medication on its own but its effects can be raised when used with metformin, for example. Studies show that Farxiga 5mg can reduce HbA1C levels by 1.2% and metformin lowers these levels by 1.4%, but, when combined, their synergistic effects contribute to a 2.1% reduction. Similar efficacy was also demonstrated for other commonly prescribed antidiabetic medications, such as pioglitazone, sitagliptin, glimepiride, and insulin.Click to read more Click to read less
