INTRODUCTION

JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG is a combination of Empagliflozin and Metformin which belongs to the group of medicines called Antidiabetic agents. JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG is indicated for the treatment of type II diabetes mellitus in addition to diet and exercise among adults who remain unresponsive to therapy with either metformin alone or in combination with other antidiabetic medicines. JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG can also be used in combination with other medicines (including insulin) to achieve better control of blood sugar level. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic medical condition in which the body does not make enough insulin, or the produced insulin does not work well. Symptoms include excessive urination, excessive thirst, hunger, fatigue, and blurred vision.

Metformin is a biguanide which effectively reduces the total amount of sugar released into the blood by the liver and empagliflozin is a SGLT2 inhibitor that blocks tubular reabsorption of glucose, leading to a marked decrease in blood glucose levels. Along treatment with JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG follow regular exercise and diet plan as advised by your doctor to achieve better results.

Avoid consumption of alcohol during treatment with JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG as it could aggravate your existing disease condition. Treatment with JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG must be discontinued for a short time, if you have any conditions that may be associated with dehydration (such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever, exposure to heat or less fluid intake). During treatment with JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG, your doctor will check your kidney function at least once a year or more frequently especially if you are elderly.

For diabetic patients, it is recommended to check their foot regularly and adhere to any other advice regarding foot care given by your doctor. JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG is generally not recommended for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women and in children (aged less than 18 years) due to lack of safety data. The most common side effects of taking JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG are hypoglycemia (low blood glucose), nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst, change in taste or dizziness. Contact your doctor if any of the symptoms worsen.

USES OF JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG

  • To treat type II diabetes mellitus in addition to diet and exercise among adults who remain unresponsive to therapy with either metformin alone or in combination with other antidiabetic medicines

HOW JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG WORKS

JARDIANCE MET 5/500MG effectively reduces blood glucose levels, where empagliflozin acts by blocking the activity of a protein called sodium glucose co-transporter 2, which is responsible for the tubular reabsorption of glucose into the blood stream and metformin acts by reducing the amount of glucose released into the blood stream by the liver, thus helps in reducing blood glucose levels.
