Farxiga (Dapagliflozin) Medication Information
Farxiga is a medication prescribed for people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It should not be used in those with type 1 diabetes. The generic name is dapagliflozin.
People with type 2 diabetes have resistance to the effects of insulin, a hormone naturally produced in the pancreas. Insulin is a chemical signal that moves glucose from the blood into the cells of the body. With insulin resistance, people with type 2 diabetes have abnormally high levels of glucose in their bloodstream.
Over time, high glucose levels damage small blood vessels of the eyes, kidneys, and feet.
Farxiga causes the kidneys to excrete more glucose than normal, which results in a reduction of blood sugar.
The starting dose of Farxiga is 5 mg by mouth once daily. After four to twelve weeks, the dose can be increased to 10 mg by mouth once daily.
Common side effects of Farxiga may include:
- Back pain
- Female genital mycotic infections
- Increased urination
- Urinary tract infections
Dapagliflozin does not have a benefit for people with type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Farxiga can cause symptoms of ketoacidosis, even at normal blood sugar levels. Your doctor should monitor for signs and symptoms of ketoacidosis and discontinue immediately if suspected.
Farxiga can lower blood pressure in people with an abnormal volume status. Use caution if you have renal impairment, low blood pressure, or are taking diuretics.
Farxiga cannot be used by people with severe impairment of the kidneys.
Use caution if you have a history of recurrent urinary tract infection (UTI)
Farxiga has possible drug-drug interactions with the following medications:
- Monoamine oxidase inhibitors
- Oral antidiabetic medications
- Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
Farxiga is often used in combination with other antidiabetic medications. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are starting any new medications.
Store Farxiga at room temperature from 20°C to 25°C (68°F to 77°F).
- Farxiga can be taken with or without food and should be taken at the same time every day.
- Under certain kinds of stress like fever, trauma, infection, or surgery, you may need to stop taking Dapagliflozin for a short time to reduce the risk of euglycemic ketoacidosis.
- It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise while taking Farxiga and other anti-diabetic medications.
What lab tests will I need to do while taking Farxiga?
Your doctor will most likely have you measure your hemoglobin A1C and a comprehensive metabolic panel (CMP). Hemoglobin A1C is a measure of your blood sugar over time, and CMP is a measure of your kidney and liver function.
How long do I need to take Farxiga?
Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a chronic condition, and anti-diabetic medications may need to be taken lifelong.
What should I do if I miss a dose of Farxiga?
Take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next dose. Do not double up to make up for the mixed dose.
