Forxiga is a diabetes medicine used for adults whose condition is not controlled well enough.
In type 2 diabetes, it is used with appropriate diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control. It can be used on its own in patients who cannot take metformin (another diabetes medicine). It can also be used as ‘add-on’ treatment to other diabetes medicines.
In type 1 diabetes, Forxiga is used with insulin in overweight patients (body mass index of at least 27 kg/m2) when insulin on its own does not control blood sugar well enough.
Forxiga contains the active substance dapagliflozin.
