What is Synjardy?

Synjardy is a medication prescribed to adults with type 2 diabetes to lower blood sugar (glucose) levels when used alongside exercise and dietary changes. It is a non-insulin diabetes medication that can lower your blood glucose levels when taken alongside lifestyle changes. You take Synjardy as a pill that should be swallowed, usually twice a day with meals. It causes you to lose more glucose in your urine than you normally would and also reduces how much glucose your liver releases into your blood, helping to lower your blood glucose levels.

Synjardy active ingredients

Synjardy is a non-insulin diabetes medication that contains two active ingredients called empagliflozin and metformin. They work together to help lower your blood glucose levels.

Empagliflozin is a drug that causes you to lose more glucose in your urine than you usually would. Your kidneys naturally help recycle sugar from your urine back into your blood. They do this with the help of a protein called SGLT-2. But empagliflozin blocks this protein from working, reducing how much glucose your kidneys recycle. This makes you lose more sugar in your urine, rather than it being excreted back into your blood.

Metformin is a drug that decreases how much glucose your liver releases. Normally, when your blood glucose levels fall, your liver releases stored glucose into your blood. But metformin can block this, reducing how much glucose is released. It can also make your cells more sensitive to insulin, making them absorb more glucose from your blood. There’s evidence it can reduce your appetite too, helping you eat less often which can also help to control your blood glucose.

Synjardy side effects & Synjardy drug interactions

The most common side effects caused by Synjardy include a stuffy or runny nose and a sore throat. Sometimes it can cause more serious side effects. When this happens, they can include:

  • Severe allergic reactions to the medication that can cause anaphylaxis
  • Kidney problems, including kidney failure
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis – a condition where high blood sugar causes high levels of ketones to build up in your body
  • A serious bacterial infection called necrotizing fasciitis that causes damage to the tissue under the skin between the anus and genitals (perineum)
  • Serious urinary tract infections
  • Very low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Falls in vitamin B12 levels can cause a vitamin B12 deficiency
  • Dehydration
  • Yeast infections in the penis or vagina
  • Increased cholesterol levels

Your doctor will assess the benefits of taking Synjardy against your risk of side effects.

Synjardy can interact with other medications. When this happens, it can alter how it works with some side effects potentially becoming more likely. These medications include:

  • Any other medications taken to treat your diabetes, like insulin or sulfonylureas
  • Any medications called diuretics that make your body lose water, usually taken to treat high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Any medications that contain corticosteroids
  • Any antibiotics taken to treat bacterial infections
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), used to treat pain and inflammation, like ibuprofen or naproxen
  • ACE inhibitors, taken to treat high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Angiotensin II receptor antagonists, taken to treat high blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Beta-2 agonists bronchodilator medications taken to treat asthma
  • Iodinated contrast agents used during X-rays
  • Any medications that contain alcohol, including over the counter cough medicines
