XIGDUO (DAPAGLIFLOZIN/METFORMIN HCL)

Xigduo Description

If you are a type 2 diabetic and having trouble controlling your blood glucose, talk to your doctor about Xigduo. This is an antidiabetic drug that has combined Dapagliflozin with Metformin HCl that you can take along with eating a sensible diet and exercising.

Xigduo will help lower your blood glucose levels and has also shown to lower your weight and blood pressure from less sugar in your body and more water being removed through urination. There is no cure for diabetes, but a healthy lifestyle and taking Xigduo as prescribed allows you to carry on with your busy day.

The Active Ingredients in Xigduo Help You in 3 Ways

When taken as directed, Dapagliflozin works as a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor. SGLT2 is a protein in your body that assists with glucose reabsorption in your kidneys so by blocking its action less glucose is reabsorbed, glucose excretion is increased, and blood glucose levels are lowered. Dapagliflozin also helps control your glucose by increasing insulin sensitivity and the uptake of glucose in your muscle cells as it works with your own insulin.

Metformin HCl lessens the amount of sugar the cells in your liver produces, increases the sensitivity of your muscle cells to insulin so sugar is removed from your blood more effectively, and the absorption of sugar is delayed from your intestines to your bloodstream after a meal.

Conditions Treated by Xigduo

Type 2 diabetes means the tissues of your body have gradually become more resistant to insulin, a vital hormone that signals your liver, muscles, and fat cells to take in glucose from your bloodstream that can be stored and used as a source of energy. In fact, glucose is your body’s main source for energy and other than that, glucose is not of much use. It is important though, as insulin is needed to ‘unlock’ cells so glucose can enter which is why type 1 diabetics cannot take Xigduo as it acts, in part, on your own insulin.

Before Xigduo is Prescribed

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking Xigduo to be certain there are no risks to your unborn or nursing baby. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs you currently take or use, including herbal remedies and vitamin or dietary supplements. This helps your doctor determine if Xigduo is the best medication for you.

Xigduo Precautions and Recommendations

If you experience muscle pain/weakness, stomach pain, trouble breathing, or nausea with vomiting, seek immediate medical assistance as Xigduo may cause lactic acidosis. You should always keep a source of sugar with you in case your blood sugar drops too low. This can include a non-diet pop, fruit juice, or raisins. All medications should be stored safely out of children’s reach and never share your meds with anyone else.
