INTRODUCTION

EMPAONE 25 contains Empagliflozin which belongs to the group of medicines called Anti-diabetic drugs. It is used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults, that cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone. It can also help to prevent heart disease in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It is also used to treat heart failure in adult patients with weak pumping function.

Diabetes can be defined as inability of your body to produce and use enough insulin (a hormone made by pancreas), resulting in abnormal blood glucose levels. It can show symptoms like increased thirst, urination and hunger, blurry vision, numbness in hands or feet, or tiredness. Heart failure occurs when the heart is weak and unable to pump enough blood to the lungs and the rest of the body, creating symptoms like breathlessness, tiredness, and ankle swelling.

Empagliflozin works by blocking a protein (SGLT2) in your kidneys. This results in removal of blood sugar (glucose) in your urine, thus lowering the amount of sugar in your blood. Appropriate diet and exercise can help your body use its blood sugar better. Follow any advice given by your doctor regarding foot care. Prior to the treatment, your doctor may want you to take several blood tests to understand your existing condition.

Before taking EMPAONE 25, inform your doctor if you have any serious liver, kidney or heart problems, or diabetes type 1. EMPAONE 25 is not recommended in pregnant or breastfeeding women, therefore consult your doctor before taking. EMPAONE 25 is not recommended for use in children and adolescents (below 18 years of age).

Consult your doctor if any of the symptoms get worsen.
