Farxiga

My Doctor is recommending Farxiga along with Metformin to lower my A1C. I'm a little afraid to try it. Has anyone taken it? ## Hello, Nancy! How are you? Exactly why are you afraid to try it? 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. I take 3 a day - tried a 4th one but made me little queasy. So she suggested the Farxiga and when I said yes to it I thought she was switching me not adding another med.

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...
