Farxiga and Peyronie's disease

Don't know how to be more specific about my problem with Farxiga, even ashamed to discuss with my doctor. When erect, my penis has shortened to 2-3" and it curves close to 45 degrees. Is there anything that can be done? {edited for privacy}

If you can post back and be specific about what side effects or risks concern you, I'll be glad to find information on them for you and help you. :-) The normal side effects can include nausea, sore throat, back pain and flu like symptoms. ## I have an A1C of 7.7 - it was as low as 6.3 when I first went on Metformin.

Has the Farxiga discount been discontinued?

I went to the pharmacy yesterday and they told me that the discount card I used is has been discontinued (I had only used it 2 times) When I attempted to obtain a new one on the farxiga website, it registered me but when I attempt to print the card I get an error on their site. Has anyone else had this issue? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. That seems rather strange, as according to the Farxiga website, each card is supposed to be good for a year, with only yearly renewals required to validate eligibility. You may want to try calling the manufacturer to see what they say, you can reach them at 1-855-3FARXIGA. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including dehydration, nausea, hypoglycemia, vaginal yea...

I have been prescribed to use Farxiga. My doctor provided me with a coupon so that I could get this medication for free. I have used it for approxiamtely 1 year at a special discount. I went to pick up this medicine yesterday and it cost approximately $297.00. Was informed that my discount coupon/card had expired. Obviusly this is too much. Can I get a special discount or assistance from the manufacturer? ## Hello, Lalo! How are you? Yes, there is an assistance program available from AstraZeneca for Farxiga. You can call them to see if you qualify and obtain an application at 800-292-6363. The program provides free or low cost medications to those in need. I actually received one from them for several years, all I had to do was renew my application each year. The FDA lists the typical s...
