Jardiance - Overview
Jardiance (empagliflozin) is a medication used as an adjunct to diet and exercise in some adults with diabetes. Push Health can connect people who might need a Jardiance prescription with licensed medical providers who can prescribe empagliflozin when safe and appropriate to do so.
What Is Jardiance Used For?
Empagliflozin, marketed under the name Jardiance, is similar to Farxiga, Invokana, and Steglatro in that it belongs to a class of medications known as sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. SGLT2 inhibitors work by blocking the reabsorption of glucose in the glomerular filtrate in the kidneys via SGLT2 transporters. This mechanism of action results in increased glucose excretion in the urine. Jardiance is used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death and as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in some adult patients with type 2 diabetes. After oral administration, peak empagliflozin levels are reached in as little as 1.5 hours and the majority is bound in the plasma to proteins. The terminal elimination half-life of empagliflozin is approximately 12.4 hours. The active ingredient in Jardiance is combined with metformin to form Synjardy.
Jardiance - Dosage and Cost
Jardiance dosing is often started at Jardiance 10 mg daily in the morning and is sometimes increased to Jardiance 25 mg daily as determined by one's medical provider. Jardiance can be taken with or without food. Empagliflozin use can impact renal function and attention needs to be paid to eGFR while using Jardiance tablets. The empagliflozin found in Jardiance is white to yellow in color and is slightly soluble in water. Jardiance is available as Jardiance 10 mg tablets and Jardiance 25 mg tablets. Jardiance tablets themselves are yellow in color, oval, film-coated and biconvex. Jardiance is expensive, costing over $20 per Jardiance 25 mg tablet when paid out of pocket. Jardiance coupons are available online and, for some people, insurance may cover the costs associated with Jardiance tablets. Jardiance tablets should generally be stored at 25° C.
Can I Buy Jardiance Online?
Jardiance is a prescription medication and one cannot simply buy Jardiance online in the US. Because of this, Jardiance OTC is not available, either. Instead, the first step is to have a consultation about Jardiance from a medical provider. Push Health connects people in need of Jardiance medication with licensed providers who can prescribe Jardiance when safe and appropriate to do so.
Jardiance - Side Effects
Jardiance can cause side effects but is well-tolerated by many patients. The most common side effects resulting from Jardiance use were urinary tract infections and yeast infections. Jardiance should generally not be used by people at risk for hypertension, ketoacidosis, kidney problems, or increased LDL-C levels. Jardiance and alcohol should not be used together. People with an allergy or hypersensitivity to Jardiance or ingredients in its formulation should not use it. Before using Jardiance, it is important to discuss possible side effects with a pharmacist and medical provider.
