Share this:


Glyxambi is a prescription medication used to treat Type 2 Diabetes.
It is a single product containing 2 medications: empagliflozin and linagliptin. Empagliflozin belongs to a group of drugs called sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors. It works by stopping the reabsorption of glucose by the kidney, increasing glucose excretion from the body, and lowering blood sugar levels. Linagliptin belongs to a group of drugs called DPP-4 inhibitors. These work by increasing the amount of insulin made by the body after meals, and by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver.

This medication comes in tablet form and is taken typically once a day in the morning, with or without food. Common side effects of Glyxambi include urinary tract infections, stuffy or runny nose and sore throat, and upper respiratory tract infections.

    Glyxambi made my heart rates from 65 to 80+ per minute. It making me feels like someone is poking my in between my chest with one finger internally and It gives a discomfort feeling in my Kidneys. Yes, it helps to lower my sugar , but what's the point of glyxambi if it's going to effects my Heart and my Kidneys in the future? It's like I have to add many more medicines for my Heart and for my kidneys if it goes down hill in the future because of the glyxambi side effects. I stopped taking glyxambi. Eat More vegetables, less salt and less sugar Ang more exercises is my medicine

    My husband is Type 2 diabetic and needs the drug (Glyxambi) to assist with controlling his diabetes. Our insurance doesn't cover any of the cost (over $500.00/mo) for 30 pills. Does anyone know where I can get this medication for a much lower price? Thanking you in advance for any feedback you can share on this topic. Peace & Blessings!!
