Table of contents:

Synjardy is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus to help control high blood sugar levels. It contains two active ingredients: empagliflozin and metformin hydrochloride. Empagliflozin works by increasing the amount of sugar that the kidneys remove from the body, and metformin works by decreasing the amount of sugar that your liver makes and that your stomach/intestines absorb. By combining these two drugs, Synjardy helps to control blood sugar levels and patients achieve better glycemic control.

Patients should take Synjardy with a proper diet and exercise program, and it is not recommended for patients with type 1 diabetes or for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis. As with any medication, patients should consult with their doctor or pharmacist for personalized information and advice on using Synjardy. It is an oral medication that is taken once a day with meals and can be used alone or with other antidiabetic drugs.

Uses and Dosage

Synjardy is available in tablet form and should be taken by mouth as prescribed by your doctor, usually twice daily with meals. Swallow Synjardy whole. Do not split, crush, dissolve, or chew the medication. Drink plenty of fluids while taking Synjardy to avoid being dehydrated. Inform your doctor and pharmacist about all the products you use, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

The recommended dosage of Synjardy varies depending on individual patient factors such as their current regimen, medical history, and response to treatment. However, a common starting dose for patients already taking 10/ 1,000 mg Empagliflozin/Metformin Hcl, a similar total daily dose of metformin to what the patient is currently taking.
