What is Xigduo?
Xigduo is an oral anti-diabetic, used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Xigduo XR (dapagliflozin and metformin HCl) is a combination of two oral antihyperglycemic medications used as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus when treatment with both dapagliflozin and metformin is appropriate.
How does Xigduo work?
Those with type 2 diabetes have pancreas’ that do not make enough insulin, or their bodies simply aren’t able to use it properly. Because insulin is linked to the level of sugar in your blood, diabetic people end up with a much higher amount, which Xigduo works to lower and control.
What are the benefits of taking Xigduo?
Diabetes is a lifelong illness, although type 2 often doesn’t develop until later in life and is linked to being overweight or inactive. Symptoms can include excessive thirst, frequent urination and extreme tiredness or fatigue.
It’s important to manage the disease, as it can cause serious health problems with your eyes, heart and nervous system, and Xigduo will help you do this.
How do I use Xigduo?
Xigduo is a prescription-only medication. Always follow the advice of your doctor and read the patient information leaflet provided in the medication packet.
Take the Xigduo tablets by swallowing whole with water, at the same time as food to lower the risk of an upset stomach (side effect). You can take it at any time of day, however keeping your chosen time consistent will help you remember to take it.
Xigduo Tablets Dosage
Xigduo contains the active ingredients dapagliflozin and metformin, in strengths of either 5 mg/850 mg or 5 mg/1,000 mg respectively, per tablet.
The normal dose is one tablet twice a day, however, your doctor will decide which dose is best based on your personal circumstances.
If you forget to take your Xigduo tablet then you should take it as soon as you remember unless it’s nearly time for your next tablet. In this case, you should skip the forgotten dose and move straight onto the next one, as you should never take a double dose.
If you take more Xigduo than you should, then go to your doctor or nearest emergency department immediately, as it can cause lactic acidosis, a serious condition that can lead to a coma. Symptoms include feeling or being sick, stomach ache with muscle cramps and severe tiredness or difficulty breathing.
How do I buy Xigduo?
You can safely buy Xigduo online at UK Meds. You will first need to have an online consultation with a pharmacist independent prescriber before your order will be supplied. The online consultation will ensure that Xigduo is the right medication for your medical condition.
