Forxiga (Dapagliflozin) is used to treat type 2 diabetes. Dapagliflozin is a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor. It decreases the levels of sugar the body absorbs and increases the levels of sugar that leaves the body in the urine. It should be used in conjunction with diet and exercise for best results.
Changes to diet and exercise may be required to get the best results from Dapagliflozin.
Dehydration can prevent Forxiga (Dapagliflozin) from working properly. Be sure to maintain an adequate fluid intake, and contact your doctor if you have bad diarrhea or vomiting.
Your doctor may prescribe regular blood tests to ensure your blood sugar levels are normal.
