Side Effects of FARXIGA
FARXIGA has the potential to cause serious side effects, such as:
- Ketoacidosis – During treatment with FARXIGA, people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes developed ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis is a life-threatening condition that can necessitate hospitalization and even death. Nausea, exhaustion, vomiting, difficulty breathing, and abdominal pain are possible symptoms. If you experience these symptoms, stop taking FARXIGA and contact your doctor right away.
- Dehydration – (a loss of body water and salt) can make you feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak, especially when standing up (orthostatic hypotension). There have been reports of people with type 2 diabetes taking this drug suffering from a sudden kidney injury. If you take blood pressure medications, such as water pills (diuretics), are 65 or older, are on a low-salt diet, or have kidney problems, you may be at a higher risk of dehydration. Consult your healthcare provider about how to avoid dehydration and how much fluid you should drink on a daily basis. If you reduce the amount of food or liquid you consume, contact your healthcare provider right away.
- Urinary tract infections (UTI) – Some of the side effects of FARXIGA lead to hospitalization. If you have any signs or symptoms of a UTI, such as a burning sensation when passing urine, a need to urinate frequently, a need to urinate right away, pain in the lower part of your stomach (pelvis), blood in the urine with or without fever, back pain, nausea, or vomiting, contact your healthcare provider.
- Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) – If you combine FARXIGA with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as sulfonylureas or insulin, you could get low blood sugar. Shaking, sweating, racing heart, dizziness, hunger, headaches, and irritability are all signs of low blood sugar. If you have low blood sugar, follow your healthcare provider’s instructions.
- Bacterial infections of the genitals and the surrounding areas – FARXIGA has been linked to rare but serious infections that result in severe tissue damage under the skin of the genitals and areas surrounding them. This infection has affected both men and women, and it can result in hospitalization, surgery, and death. If you have a fever or are feeling very weak, tired, or uncomfortable, and you develop any pain, tenderness, swelling, or redness of the skin in the genitals or areas around them, seek medical attention right away.
- Yeast infections in the vaginal area in women – If you have a vaginal odor, white or yellowish vaginal discharge (which may be lumpy or look like cottage cheese), or vaginal itching, see your doctor.
- Balanitis (yeast infection of the skin around the penis) – If you have redness, itching, or swelling of the penis; a rash on the penis; foul-smelling discharge from the penis; or pain in the skin around the penis, see your doctor. Uncircumcised men may experience swelling in the penis, making it difficult to pull back the skin around the penis’ tip.
