Farxiga (Dapagliflozin) - Overview
Dapagliflozin, marketed under the name Farxiga, is a medication used in improving glucose control in some people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. People who need a dapagliflozin prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Farxiga when appropriate to do so.
What Is Farxiga Used For?
Farxiga (dapagliflozin), similar to the medications Invokana, Jardiance, and Steglatro belongs to a drug class known as sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. As an SGLT2 inhibitor, Farxiga helps lower the reabsorption of glucose from the lumens of tubules in the kidneys by blocking the cotransporter, resulting in increased excretion of glucose in the urine. Increased excretion of glucose can help stabilize glycemic levels in some people with diabetes. Farxiga and metformin may be beneficial if used concomitantly. Farxiga should not be used for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis or type I diabetes mellitus.
Farxiga - Coupon and Cost
People paying out of pocket will find Farxiga to be expensive. Farxiga costs approximately $16 per Farxiga 10 mg tablet at most pharmacies in the US. Farxiga coupons are sometimes available online or through the manufacturer. Insurance plans may also cover the costs associated with a Farxiga prescription (depending on the insurance plan). As Farxiga, dapagliflozin is available as Farxiga 5mg tablets and Farxiga 10 mg tablets. Farxiga tablets are yellow in color and biconvex in shape. Many providers will use a starting dose of Farxiga 5 mg once daily in the morning but the final regimen used depends on the judgment of the prescribing medical practitioner. Farxiga can be taken with or without food. After being taken orally, Farxiga has been observed to reach a peak plasma concentration within 2 hours in most healthy people and is mostly bound to proteins. While some dapagliflozin is excreted in the feces, most dapagliflozin and metabolites are excreted in the urine.
