Apply a "Take With Plenty of Water"Auxiliary Label to Jardiance Rxs
Jardiance (jar-DEE-ans, empagliflozin) will be the third "flozin" for type 2 diabetes...and join Invokana and Forxiga on your shelves.
These lower blood glucose by sending excess sugar through the kidneys and into the urine...instead of being reabsorbed back into the bloodstream.
Expect Jardiance to be saved as a second- or third-line option after metformin. It may cause genital yeast and urinary tract infections...and drops in blood pressure due to its diuretic effect.
