      How it works

      Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2), expressed in the proximal renal tubules, is responsible for the majority of the reabsorption of filtered glucose from the tubular lumen. Dapagliflozin is an inhibitor of SGLT2. By inhibiting SGLT2, dapagliflozin reduces reabsorption of filtered glucose and lowers the renal threshold for glucose, and thereby increases urinary glucose excretion.

Symptomatic hypotension can occur after initiating dapagliflozin particularly in patients with impaired renal function (eGFR less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2), elderly patients, or patients on loop diuretics. Before initiating dapagliflozin in patients, volume status should be assessed and corrected. Monitor for signs and symptoms of hypotension after initiating therapy.

      Xiga Tablets Warnings

      Warning 1

      Insulin and insulin secretagogues are known to cause hypoglycemia. It can increase the risk of hypoglycemia when combined with insulin or an insulin secretagogue. Therefore, a lower dose of insulin or insulin secretagogue may be required to minimize the risk of hypoglycemia when these agents are used in combination with Dapagliflozin.

      Warning 2

      It should not be used in patients with active bladder cancer. In patients with prior history of bladder cancer, the benefits of glycemic control versus unknown risks for cancer recurrence with dapagliflozin should be considered.

      Warning 3

      It increases the risk of genital mycotic infections. Patients with a history of genital mycotic infections were more likely to develop genital mycotic infections.
