Indications And Uses
Empagliflozin is indicated - as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus and - to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death in adult patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and established cardiovascular diseases
Dosage And Administration
The recommended dose of Glipatab is 10 mg once daily, taken in the morning, with or without food. In patients tolerating Empagliflozin, the dose may be increased to 25 mg once daily. In patients with volume depletion, correcting this condition prior to initiation of Empagliflozin is recommended.
The most common adverse reactions associated with Empagliflozin are urinary tract infections and female genital mycotic infections. Other common side effects include dehydration, hypotension, weakness, dizziness and increased thirstiness.
Assessment of renal function is recommended prior to initiation of Empagliflozin and periodically thereafter. Empagliflozin should not initiated in patients with an eGFR less than 45 mL/min/1.73m2. No dose adjustment is needed in patients with an eGFR greater than or equal to 45 mL/min/1.73m2.
Use In Pregnancy Lactation
There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of Empagliflozin in pregnant women. Empagliflozin should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. It is not known if Empagliflozin is excreted in human milk. It is not recommended when breastfeeding.
Diuretics: Co-administration of Empagliflozin with diuretics resulted in increased urine volume. Insulin or Insulin Secretagogues: Co-administration of Empagliflozin with insulin or insulin secretagogues increases the risk for hypoglycemia. Positive Urine Glucose Test: Monitoring glycemic control with urine glucose tests is not recommended in patients taking SGLT2 inhibitors as SGLT2 inhibitors increase urinary glucose excretion and will lead to positive urine glucose tests. Use alternative methods to monitor glycemic control. Interference with 1,5-anhydroglucitol (1,5-AG) Assay: Monitoring glycemic control with 1,5-AG assay is not recommended as measurements of 1,5-AG are unreliable in assessing glycemic control in patients taking SGLT2 inhibitors. Use alternative methods to monitor glycemic control.
