Jardiance and Thrush

I have been taking Jardiance for about 5 weeks now but have had to stop due to thrush that wont go away, I could cope with the thirst and peeing but not this constant thrush, its making me miserable, anyone else experience this and did it go away eventually? ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? Actually, that is most likely due to your being diabetic and not due to the medication. Diabetes is well known to cause thrush in women, according to the NIH. It would be best to consult your doctor, since they may be able to prescribe something that will help prevent it, because it is far more dangerous to go off of the medication and let your blood sugar get out of control. Are you on any other medications? ## Hi, I have been diabetic for 6 years, the doctor who prescribed Jardinance did say it would ... ...

Metformin/jardiance

Hi I take 25mgs of Jardiance after my breakfast and 2000 mg after dinner. Because of having to visit the bathroom much more with the Jardiance in the mornings, could I take it after my evening meal and the Metformin after my breakfast? This would only be while I am away on holiday and then go back to normal taking the tablets as before my holidays ...

Jardiance weight loss

Switched from Invokana to Jardiance 2 months ago. I had lost 3-4 pounds on Invokana. Since taking Jardiance I have lost an additional 7 pounds; at my lowest weight in over 30 years. Love it except for all the peeing. ## Weight loss is not listed as a side effect in FDA reports, but it is never easy to say how any given medication will actually affect anyone that takes it. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including dizziness, headache, hypoglycemia, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

jardiance not diabetic

So my doctor gave me the free year of jardiance card w/ prescription and says it will block sugar from remaining in my system or whatever. I'm not diabetic, I'm 29, 6'3" 265 lbs but not in bad shape and he says it will help me lose weight. I haven't seen or heard of anyone taking it for this purpose and just curious if anyone has any insight. I know the side effects but I'm not prone to infections or diabetic so I don't know..... ## Hello, Stewie! How are you? Well, only you can make the final decision on whether or not to take it, but yes, many oral antidiabetic medications have been shown to help with weight loss, by improving the body's use and processing of insulin. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, flatulence, diarrhea and stomach pain. Is ... ...

Just started Jardiance

I have been on Jardiance for over two weeks now. I have experienced dizziness, nausea, headaches, and shakiness and some diarrhea. Are these common side effects? I called my doctor today and she wants me to continue for a few more weeks. Do these side effects subside? How long does it take? I take no other medication for diabetes. I had been taking Invokana but due to insurance I had to switch. My last A1C was 5.7. Can anyone help with side effects? Should I take at night rather than morning? Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. ## Yes, those can be normal side effects of this medication, you may also experience stomach pain, and flatulence, according to FDA reports. Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications? ## No I am not on any other diabetic meds. How ... ...

Jardiance and magnesium

I started with 10mg of Jardiance around three weeks back. I am already on 2000mg of metformin. Since I started Jardiance I've been suffering badly from thrush, around every 90 minutes I am peeing. Initially I showed around 10 pounds of weight loss and now again I am gaining the weight back. My other concern is that my magnesium levels have gone down as I am peeing too much and the absorption of the nutrient is less. Please advise... ...

Breathless on Jardiance

I am unable to take Metformin as it causes severe side effects and pulmonary oedema. I tried Liraglutide (Victoza) injections which gave my tachycardia. As I have heart failure I was then prescribed Jardiance 10mg 3 months ago which seemed to be ok but I'm not on the loo every hour and have not lost weight (gained 5kg actually). It was increased to 25mg 2 weeks ago and I have been increasingly breathless on mild exertion (speaking and bending forward). Feel like I'm full term pregnant. Surely I can't have side-effects to this too? My blood sugars are fine. ## What are your blood pressure readings? The symptoms you've described can also be due to congestive heart failure, according to NIH warnings. Those are typical symptoms of it. Do you ever wake up at night unable to b... ...

Jardiance and weight loss

I just recently started on Jardiance to assist in stabilizing blood sugar. I have Type 2 diabetes and struggle in keeping my A1C within normal range. This drug was added to help reduce sugar and possible weight loss. I am wondering what type of weight loss people are experiencing and what side effects if any. I am only on this med 5 days so far but urinating frequently, does it slow down after some time? That's what my doc said. Thanks. ## Hi Sue, I have not tried the medication known as Jardiance (empagliflozin) for stabilizing blood sugar levels, but did want to share a brief general list of side effects I came across, courtesy of the FDA [1]: - Hypotension (low blood pressure) - Impaired Renal Function - Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) - Genital Mycotic Infections - Urinary Tract ... ...

Long term use of Jardiance

Well, I have been on Jardiance for 4 months now. I have lost 42 pounds. I have reduced meds. But I have to say, I am peeing every hour, and am fairly incontinent. I also have a funny ashy taste in my mouth. Is there anybody else out there on this stuff? ## Hello, Rebecca! How are you? I'm sorry about the side effects that you're experiencing. As listed by the FDA, Jardiance is used to treat type 2 diabetes and help boost weight loss. The increased urination is normal, that's how the medication eliminated the excess sugars from the body, other side effects may include nausea, hypotension, UTIs and hypoglycemia. What dosage are you on? You may need an adjustment, if it's pushing you to the point where you are experiencing incontinence. ## I go back to the doctor next week.... ...

Jardiance and Insulin pump

Hi, I'm on an insulin pump gained weight , can I use Jardiance with an insulin pump? My doctor put me in samples of Sanjardy and gave me a script. Insurance won't pay for it, but will pay for Jardiance. Since the pump delivers insulin automatically through out the day is it safe ## It is usually best to follow your doctor's instructions. The dosage in your pump can always be adjusted, if necessary. The FDA warns that these medications may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, and diarrhea. Have you started taking it, yet? If so, how are you doing? ## I have an insulin pump and have been on 10mg for about a month with the need to adjust my basal down on my pump and cut my night time bolus in half.

Can I take Jardiance at night

I just started Jardiance today in the morning together with my insulin and metformin xr x 1000. I have been feeling nausea all day, not been able to do much. Can I take this tablet in the evening so I can sleep away the nausea. I didnt have to run to the toilet alot but it may change as I continue/ ## Hi Im curious about taking at night as well,, how is it working out for you.? ## Hello Karen, According to the manufacturer's directions Jardiance is to be taken first thing in the morning with or without food. My research has found that this is primarily due to the way that our bodies handle insulin after a long resting periods without eating. When my wife was diagnosed with gestational diabetes she was instructed to eat foods at very particular intervals and take her medication withi... ...

Jardiance and yeast infections

I was taking Jardiance 10 mg at night before bed, it did keep my sugar down. Now I take metformin in the morning and radiance 25 mg before bed. I haven't had a yeast infection in years, and wondered if anyone else is experiencing this kind of reaction? ## Hello, Christy! How are you? What have your blood sugar levels been? Women with diabetes often experience yeast infections, when their sugars are out of control, as reported by the NIH. Thus, it may be more due to having it under better control. Can any other women who are diabetic chime in? ## I've been taking 25mg X11 wk. Yesterday I noticed itching. Sugars around 130 in am, decreasing to 90-100 during the day. Going to try probiotics. I came off actos due to 20lb weight gain. I also take metformin 500 twice a day. I'm lo... ...

Positive Jardiance experience

I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes on 5 Jan 2017,when my blood glucose was 718, with a HgbA1C of 9. So began my journey on Regular insulin and Lantus, with a drastic change in diet and a script for Metabolic Surgery(the new gold standard for the treatment of diabetics that are morbidly obese) I was switched to metformin which caused major gastric problems, then went to Januvia with glimepiride, then advanced to Jardiance 25mg with glimepiride 4mg twice a day. I have changed my diet and started exercising 3-4 times a week. I have lost 45 lbs and have had to cut the glimepiride out. So presently I am taking the Jardiance daily in the am and my A1C is down to 5.4 and my average blood sugar is in the low 100's. I have had one UTI, and the weight loss as side effects from the Jardiance. S ...

My sugar is always high. Is it safe for me to take so many medications? ## If your sugar level is always high, then it is highly likely that you are actually diabetic, that is one of the most obvious symptoms of diabetes, according to the NIH. Other symptoms are listed as possibly including headache, weight gain, frequently feeling hungry, and frequent urination. Do you experience any of these, symptoms? ## Hi yes I have all those symptoms Verwon I am always Up every night peeing. My doctor told me I'm pre Diabetic so I guess that's why she put me on Diabex.
