  • INDICATIONS

    Forxiga is used to treat adults with type-2 diabetes.

    Forxiga can be used on its own in patients whose blood glucose (sugar) levels are not satisfactorily controlled on diet and exercise alone and who cannot tolerate metformin (another antidiabetes medicine).
    Forxiga can also be used as an ‘add-on’ to other antidiabetes medicines, including insulin, when these medicines together with exercise and diet are not providing adequate control of the diabetes.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    The recommended dose of Forxiga is 10 mg once a day. If Forxiga is used in combination with insulin or medicines that make the body produce insulin, their doses may need to be reduced to decrease the risk of hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar levels). As the effects of Forxiga are dependent on kidney function, the effectiveness of the medicine is reduced in patients with reduced kidney function.

    Therefore, the use of Forxiga is not recommended in patients with moderately or severely reduced kidney function. For patients with severely reduced liver function a starting dose of 5 mg is recommended.

    DOSAGE

    Please consult a doctor regarding the required dosage. The recommended dose of Forxiga is 10 mg once a day.

    STORAGE

    Dapagliflozin tablets should always be kept in the original container and stored at room temperature. You must also make sure the medicine is kept out of the sight and reach of children.

     

  • Forxiga must not be used in people who are hypersensitive (allergic) to dapagliflozin or any of the other ingredients.

    Do not take this medication if:

    you have moderate-to-severe reduced kidney function or end stage kidney disease;
    you have Type I diabetes.

  • The most common side effect with Forxiga (seen in more than 1 patient in 10) is hypoglycaemia when used with a sulphonylurea or insulin. For the full list of side effects reported with Forxiga, see the package leaflet.
