Farxiga - Overview
Farxiga is a medication used in improving glucose control in some people with type 2 diabetes mellitus. People who need a Farxiga prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider online who can prescribe Farxiga medication, including Farxiga 5 mg and Farxiga 10 mg tablets, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Farxiga Used For?
Farxiga contains the drug dapagliflozin and is similar to the medications canagliflozin (Invokana), empagliflozin (Jardiance), and ertugliflozin (Steglatro) in that it 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 (Glucophage) may be beneficial if used concomitantly. Farxiga should not be used for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis or type I diabetes mellitus.
