Farxiga (dapagliflozin) is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Dapagliflozin is a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitor, decreases plasma glucose levels by suppressing renal glucose reabsorption and increasing urinary glucose excretion (Ptaszynska & et al. 2015). The FDA approved Farxiga on January 8, 2014. The recommended starting dose of FARXIGA is 5 mg once daily, taken in the morning, with or without food. In patients tolerating FARXIGA 5 mg once daily who require additional glycemic control, the dose can be increased to 10 mg once daily.
