Drug Description


Synjardy is a medication that contains a combination of empagliflozin and metformin, two oral diabetes medications that aid in controlling blood sugar levels.  

Empagliflozin functions by facilitating the kidneys in eliminating glucose from the bloodstream, while metformin reduces glucose production in the liver and restricts the absorption of glucose by the intestines.  

This medication is prescribed in conjunction with proper diet and exercise to enhance blood sugar regulation in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.  

Synjardy is used to minimize the likelihood of fatality from heart attack, stroke, or heart failure in adults with type 2 diabetes who have heart disease. 

Uses and Dosage 

Prior to taking this medication, read the Medication Guide and, if available, the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist. In case of any doubts or concerns, please consult your physician or pharmacist. 

Take this medication orally, exactly as directed by your doctor, typically twice daily with meals. The dosage may vary based on your medical condition, response to treatment, and other medications you may be currently taking.  

Inform your doctor and pharmacist about all products you use, including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products. To decrease the likelihood of side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, your doctor may prescribe a low dose initially and gradually increase your dose. Adhere to your doctor’s instructions carefully. 

For optimal results, take this medication regularly at the same time(s) each day. To help you remember, it may be helpful to take it with meals. 

Notify your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens (e.g., if your blood sugar level is too high or too low).
