Dapaglifozin 10mg + METOFORMIN 500 MG


Dapagliflozin 10mg combined with Metformin 500mg is used to manage type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults. Dapagliflozin is an SGLT2 inhibitor that helps lower blood sugar levels by preventing the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose. Metformin, a biguanide, reduces glucose production in the liver and improves insulin sensitivity. Together, these medications provide a synergistic effect in controlling blood sugar levels, promoting weight loss, and reducing the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Side Effects:-

  • Genital Infections: Dapagliflozin increases glucose excretion in the urine, which can lead to genital infections such as yeast infections and urinary tract infections. Symptoms include itching, irritation, and unusual discharge.
  • Gastrointestinal Issues: Metformin can cause gastrointestinal side effects, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort. These symptoms are usually temporary and can be minimized by taking the medication with food.
  • Hypoglycemia: While the risk of hypoglycemia is low when dapagliflozin and metformin are used alone, it can increase when used with other diabetes medications such as insulin or sulfonylureas. Symptoms include sweating, dizziness, and confusion.
  • Dehydration: Dapagliflozin can cause increased urination, which may lead to dehydration. Patients should ensure they drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
  • Lactic Acidosis: A rare but serious side effect of metformin is lactic acidosis, characterized by muscle pain, respiratory distress, and abdominal pain. Immediate medical attention is required if these symptoms occur.
  • Ketoacidosis: Dapagliflozin may rarely lead to diabetic ketoacidosis, a serious condition with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Medical help should be sought immediately if these symptoms appear.
