More on JARDIANCE: Reviews Summary  |  Drug Safety Information

 1  Type 2 diabetes The constant trips to the bathroom started almost immediately. I was dehydrated. Started taking massive amounts of fluids but couldn't get it to stay in. Developed severe muscle pain. Several days later so fatigued I stayed in bed for the better part of 2 days. Tested positive for a UTI with severe pain in my side. Believe it may have settled in the kidney. Took myself off as it didn't really affect my blood sugars at all. I wouldn't recommend this to my worst enemy. F 52 14 days

 1  Type 2 Diabetes Extreme weakness. Yeast infection. Insomnia. Joint pain. Dizziness. Excessive urination. Incontinence. DEPRESSION. Review 1 A.. I will never take another JARDIANCE tablet in my life. I was prescribed high dose Prednisone for nasal polyps 7yrs ago. Unknowingly my health deteriorated extremely whilst taking that drug and waiting for surgery. I nearly died. I had no idea that my blood sugar was so elevated. I never had a problem with blood sugar. Even when I had my 2 children. 2016 I took myself to hospital with a very swollen painful finger from a tiny scratch. The resus team was called to my bed twice that night. The poisoning effect of the Prednisone had deteriorated my health to near death. I required 3 surgeries and an extended time in hospital. As a result I was prescribed a cocktail of drugs for blood sugar, gut health, high blood pressure and bone density. My bone density is that of a 90yr old. I have lost 3inches off my height. I was imediately placed under the care of an endocrinologist. I know how blessed I am to live in Australia with a public health system that still provides care in such situations. I was not prescribed Jardiance at first. After approx 20 mths of continued outpatient care, they said it was a new drug and "we are seeing good results...you might get a slight yeast infection" Now after 2 years on Jardiance I constantly feel like I will never be free from pain and thrush and never be able to sleep through the night. I consistently get extreme yeast infections when I have never had a yeast infection in my life. Shortness of breath. F 56 2 years

 1  Type 2 Diabetes Review 1B Very distresing isomnia. Restless legs. Extreme joint pain so concerned that I once presented to the Emergency department. Full blood test, scans and ultrasound showed nothing. Overwhelming depression. Extreme random pain. Body anxiety..a feeling of overall physical distress. Constantly tired. Yesterday I needed to dispense another months supply it cost $56 for 30 x 25mg tabs but something said to me maybe you should check out that drug. See what others have experienced...it was that little voice inside your head that we know we should listen to. Well here I am this is about the third site I have visited and I have been overwhelmed with sadness to read the terrible experiences people have been put through because of this toxic drug. Thank-you for giving me the opportunity to at least share my experience. I pray for improved health of all of us. F 56 2 years

 1  Type 2 Unbearable side effects. Terrible F 58 5 days
 2  Trying to reduce high blood sugars Due to increased UTIs reduced dosage from 10mg to 5mg to 2.5mg and ultimately stopped taking it all together. Drinking a gallon of water each day, so not a dehydration issue. After stopping Jardiance gained 20lbs within 4 months. No other medication, dietary, or physical activity changes to contribute to the weight gain. Had to get super strict with calorie counting to start taking it off again. F 37 18 months
 3  Prescribed by my Edocronogist Had blood in my urine and went and had a Cystoscopy which showed a lesion growing on my Bladder wall. Had the lesion removed and the biopsy came back as cancer. Stop taking the Jardiance and no new growth after removal of the first found tumor. M 67 2 years

JARDIANCE  (EMPAGLIFLOZIN):  Empagliflozin is used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Empagliflozin is also used in patients with type 2 diabetes and heart disease to lower the risk of death from heart attack or stroke. Empagliflozin works by increasing the removal of sugar by your kidneys.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
