Jardiance (Empagliflozin) Medication Information
Your healthcare provider may prescribe Jardiance to treat type 2 diabetes mellitus. The active ingredient is empagliflozin.
People with type 2 diabetes have high levels of glucose in their blood. Their glucose is high because they do not produce enough insulin, or the insulin they produce is not effective. High blood sugar can lead to long-term complications like vision damage, kidney damage, and damage to the peripheral nerves. It can also cause other vascular problems like the narrowing of important blood vessels.
Jardiance is an SGLT2 inhibitor. SGLT2 is a protein in the kidneys that filters glucose back into the bloodstream. In people without diabetes, this protein helps people keep normal blood sugar levels. Jardiance shuts off this protein, increasing the amount of glucose that escapes in the urine.
Jardiance should be prescribed in addition to diet and exercise to help lower blood sugar.
The starting dose of Jardiance is 10 mg by mouth once daily. It can be taken with or without food.
Your doctor will monitor your blood sugar while you take Jardiance. If the 10 mg dose is not enough, then after 4 to 12 weeks, the dose may be increased to 25 mg by mouth once daily.
Common side effects of Jardiance include:
- Female genital mycotic infections (yeast infections)
- Increased thirst
- Urinary tract infections
The most common side effect is urinary tract infections (UTI), which are more common in women than in men.
Jardiance cannot be used to treat type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Use caution if you are an older adult, have kidney problems, have low blood pressure, or are taking a diuretic.
Jardiance and similar medications can cause ketoacidosis, even when blood sugar is at normal levels. It is more common during stressful situations like surgery.
Jardiance can increase cholesterol levels in some people.
Jardiance can interact with the following medications:
- Loop diuretics
- Thiazide diuretics
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any of the above medications.
Store Jardiance near room temperature at 25°C (77°F), between 15°-30°C
- Before starting Jardiance, become familiar with the symptoms of urinary tract infection. Common symptoms include a burning feeling, a need to urinate often, the need to urinate right away, pain in the pelvis, and blood in the urine.
- Jardiance can cause low blood sugar, especially if you are taking other anti-diabetic medications. Low blood sugar signs include hunger, irritability, headache, fast heartbeat, confusion, dizziness, sweating, and shaking.
- If you get dizzy while taking Jardiance, check your blood pressure to make sure it’s not too low.
Does Jardiance have to be taken with food?

What should I do if I miss a dose of Jardiance?
