2. What is FORZIGA and what is it used for?
• FORZIGA is a yellow, biconvex, about 1.1 x 0.8 cm, diamond-shaped, film-coated tablet. It has "10" on one side and "1428" on the other. FORZIGA is available in blisters of 28 or 90 tablets in cardboard boxes.
• FORZIGA contains 10 mg dapagliflozin (as Dapagliflozin propanediol monohydrate) as an active ingredient. FORZIGA containing dapagliflozin belongs to a group of medicines called oral antidiabetics.
• FORZIGA is used in the treatment of a type of diabetes mellitus called “Type 2 diabetes” in adult patients (18 years of age and above). If you have type 2 diabetes, your pancreas cannot adequately produce insulin, an enzyme that lowers the amount of sugar in your blood, or your body cannot properly use the insulin produced by the pancreas. As a result, the sugar level in your blood rises.
• FORZIGA works by removing excess sugar from your blood through your urine.
• FORZIGA is used if your diabetes cannot be controlled by other diabetes medication / drugs, diet and exercise.
• If you are intolerant to metformin, your doctor may suggest that you take FORZIGA alone or take it with other drugs used in the treatment of diabetes. FORZIGA can be used in combination with another drug administered orally and / or by injection, or with insulin or GLP-1 receptor agonist that lowers the amount of sugar in your blood.
