Drugs used in diabetes
Forxiga is indicated in adults aged 18 years and older with type-2 diabetes mellitus to improve glycaemic control as:
- monotherapy when diet and exercise alone do not provide adequate glycaemic control in patients for whom use of metformin is considered inappropriate due to intolerance;
- add-on combination therapy in combination with other glucose-lowering medicinal products including insulin, when these, together with diet and exercise, do not provide adequate glycaemic control.
