What is Jardiance?

Jardiance is a medicine prescribed to adults with type 2 diabetes. It’s used to reduce blood sugar levels (when used alongside exercise and diet changes) and to reduce the risk of death by cardiovascular disease.

The medication can help you lower your blood sugar levels when taken alongside dietary and lifestyle changes. It causes you to excrete more sugar in your urine than you would normally. This lowers your blood sugar and helps to reduce your risk of health conditions like cardiovascular disease. Jardiance comes as a tablet you swallow with water.

Jardiance active ingredients

The active ingredient in Jardiance is called empagliflozin. It lowers your blood sugar levels by causing you to lose more sugar in your urine than you usually would.

Your kidneys help recycle sugar back into your blood from your urine, with the help of a protein called SGLT-2. Empagliflozin blocks this protein from working, reducing how much sugar your kidneys recycle. This makes you lose more sugar in your urine, rather than it being excreted back into your blood.

Jardiance side effects & Jardiance drug interactions

As is the case with most medications, Jardiance can cause side effects. You might not experience any, but the most common can include:

  • Genital yeast infections (thrush) in both men and women
  • Needing to urinate more often and urinating more than usual
  • Feeling more thirsty than usual
  • Itching
  • A skin rash – this may be itchy and include raised bumps and blisters that leak fluid, and may cause your skin to redden
  • An increase in cholesterol levels (this may show up in blood tests)

In rare instances, Jardiance can cause more serious side effects, including:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication
  • A rare but serious bacterial infection that damages tissue under the skin (necrotizing fasciitis) in the area between the anus and genitals (perineum)
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially life-threatening condition where your body breaks down too much fat too quickly, causing you to produce high levels of blood acids called ketones
  • Hypoglycemia – your blood sugar falling too low – particularly when used with other medications like insulin or sulfonylurea
  • An increased risk of serious urinary tract infections 
  • A high and potentially harmful increase in your cholesterol levels
  • Dehydration 

Jardiance can also interact with other medications, which can limit its effectiveness, including:

  • Any other diabetes medications, like insulin or sulfonylureas
  • Other medications that can lower your blood sugar levels, like diuretics, corticosteroids, estrogens, oral contraceptives, nicotinic acid, and calcium channel blocking drugs
