What is Glyxambi?

Glyxambi (generic name Empagliflozin/Linagliptin) is a once-a-day diabetes pill that is used along with diet and exercise to help keep blood sugar levels under control. If you have a history of heart disease along with type 2 diabetes, then Glyxambi lowers your risk of dying from a stroke or heart attack. Glyxambi is a combination of two diabetes medicines: Linagliptin (Tradjenta), and Empagliflozin (Jardiance).

Conditions treated by Glyxambi

Adults with type 2 diabetes use Glyxambi to lower blood sugar in combination with exercise and diet. It's also used by adults with heart disease and type 2 diabetes to help prevent heart attacks, strokes, and sudden death.

What are the side effects of Glyxambi?

Possible Glyxambi side effects include:

  • Runny nose, stuffy nose, or sore throat
  • Sinus or throat infection (Upper respiratory tract infection)
  • Genital yeast infection (penis infection in men or vaginal infection in women)
    • Can cause redness, pain, foul odor, itching, swelling,or discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
    If you have a UTI, you may experience one or any of the following symptoms:
    • Feeling like you cannot control your pee because you need to pee more often
    • Feeling burning or pain when you pee
    • Pain in your pelvis (lower part of your stomach)
    • Back pain or fever
    • Throwing up
    • Nausea (feeling sick to your stomach)
    Call your doctor immediately if you think you have a UTI. A possible Glyxambi side effect is a very serious UTI which requires treatment in a hospital, so let your doctor know immediately if you start having any symptoms.

Rare, but serious Glyxambi side effects include:

  • Increased ketones in blood and urine (ketoacidosis)
    • You may feel sick to your stomach, or throw up. Some people feel tired, have stomach pain, or have trouble breathing. This can happen even if your blood sugar is less than 250mg/dL, so be sure to check for ketones in your urine if you have any of these symptoms.
  • Dehydration or Low Blood Pressure
    • You can feel dizzy, lightheaded, or faint, especially if you try standing up too fast. This is more likely to happen if you're over age 65, have kidney problems, take blood pressure medicine, or eat a low salt diet.
  • Low blood sugar
    • This can leave you feeling shaky, sweaty, weak, tired, hungry, confused and irritable, feeling like your heart is racing, or give you a headache. Before starting Glyxambi, ask your doctor to check your risk for developing low blood sugar (especially if you take Glyxambi with other diabetes medicine). Understand how to bring your sugar back up safely, as directed by your doctor.
  • Kidney problems
    • A possible Glyxambi side effect is that it may hurt your kidneys. Routine blood tests are recommended before and while using Glyxambi to make sure your kidneys stay healthy. Call your doctor immediately if you suddenly start to drink or eat less (for example, if you get sick), or if you start losing liquid (through diarrhea, vomiting, or blood loss) because this can make it more likely for Glyxambi to harm your kidneys.
  • Increases in fat or cholesterol in your blood. Sometimes Glyxambi can make your cholesterol levels go up, so your doctor will monitor your blood tests regularly.
  • A severe genital infection around the anus
    • Glyxambi may harm the tissue under the skin around the anus, and cause redness, pain, or swelling in your genital area.
  • Allergic reaction (rash, hives, swelling of face and tongue, trouble breathing)
  • Severe joint pain
  • Skin blisters, or thinning skin

This is not a complete list of all Glyxambi side effects. Call your doctor immediately if you think you are experiencing any side effects from Glyxambi.
