For adults with type 2 and CV disease

JARDIANCE can also reduce the risk of cardiovascular (CV) death

JARDIANCE has been tested—and proven in a cardiovascular study—to offer this lifesaving cardiovascular benefit: significantly reduced risk of cardiovascular death in adults with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Along with diet and exercise, JARDIANCE lowers A1C for adults with type 2 diabetes.

When we studied JARDIANCE in adults with type 2 diabetes, we found that JARDIANCE helped people lower blood sugar and A1C—and achieve additional benefits, too.

In fact, when added to metformin in a 24‑week study, JARDIANCE tablets 10 mg and 25 mg helped people see A1C reductions of 0.7% and 0.8%—approximately 6 times better, on average, than those taking metformin alone (0.1% decrease).

Lower A1C

Lower A1C

In a 24‑week study
of adults with type 2 diabetes,

JARDIANCE helped
some people achieve
an A1C of less than 7%.*

*13% of people taking placebo saw their A1C drop below 7%, compared with 38% of people taking JARDIANCE 10 mg and 39% of those taking JARDIANCE 25 mg.

Blood Sugar

In a 24‑week study of adults with type 2 diabetes,

People taking JARDIANCE alone reduced their fasting blood sugar levels (the measurement taken before breakfast) by an average of 19 or 25 points(mg/dL).*

Check average fasting blood sugar

*Fasting blood sugar increased 12 points (mg/dL) in people taking placebo, while those taking JARDIANCE 10 mg and 25 mg saw their blood sugar drop 19 and 25 points. At the beginning of the 24‑week trials, patients had an average fasting blood sugar of 153 mg/dL.

Additional Benefits

Average % weight loss

Even though JARDIANCE is not made for weight loss, it could also help some people lose some weight. In studies of adults with type 2 diabetes, people lost 2-3% of their body weight, on average.

Lower systolic blood pressure

And although not made to lower blood pressure, when JARDIANCE was used alone or with metformin, it helped some people lower systolic blood pressure (the top number of the blood pressure reading) a little bit, too.

When it’s time to add JARDIANCE.

We get it. Adding a medication can feel like a burden. But type 2 diabetes is a condition that may require you to make some changes—often meaning different medicines at different times.

Over time, adding a medication, along with diet and exercise, can help you get better control over your blood sugar.

WHAT IS JARDIANCE?

JARDIANCE is a prescription medicine used along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes.

JARDIANCE is also used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death in adults with type 2 diabetes who have known cardiovascular disease.

JARDIANCE is not for people with type 1 diabetes or for people with diabetic ketoacidosis (increased ketones in the blood or urine).

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

What is the most important information I should know about JARDIANCE?

JARDIANCE can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Dehydration. JARDIANCE can cause some people to have dehydration (the loss of body water and salt). Dehydration may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, light-headed, or weak, especially when you stand up. You may be at a higher risk of dehydration if you: have low blood pressure, take medicines to lower your blood pressure, including water pills (diuretics), are on a low salt diet, have kidney problems, are 65 years of age or older.
  • Ketoacidosis (increased ketones in your blood or urine). Ketoacidosis is a serious condition and may need to be treated in the hospital. Ketoacidosis may lead to death. Ketoacidosis occurs in people with type 1 diabetes and can also occur in people with type 2 diabetes taking JARDIANCE, even if blood sugar is less than 250 mg/dL. Stop taking JARDIANCE and call your doctor right away if you get any of the following symptoms, and if possible, check for ketones in your urine: nausea, vomiting, stomach-area (abdominal) pain, tiredness, or trouble breathing.
  • Serious urinary tract infections. Serious urinary tract infections can occur in people taking JARDIANCE and may lead to hospitalization. Tell your doctor if you have symptoms of a urinary tract infection such as a burning feeling when passing urine, a need to urinate often or right away, pain in the lower part of your stomach or pelvis, or blood in the urine. Sometimes people also may have a fever, back pain, nausea or vomiting.
  • Vaginal yeast infection. Women who take JARDIANCE may get vaginal yeast infections. Talk to your doctor if you experience vaginal odor, white or yellowish vaginal discharge (discharge may be lumpy or look like cottage cheese), and/or vaginal itching.
  • Yeast infection of the penis. Men who take JARDIANCE may get a yeast infection of the skin around the penis, especially uncircumcised males and those with chronic infections. Talk to your doctor if you experience redness, itching or swelling of the penis, rash of the penis, foul smelling discharge from the penis, and/or pain in the skin around the penis.

Who should not take JARDIANCE?

  • Do not take JARDIANCE if you are allergic to empagliflozin or any of the ingredients in JARDIANCE.
  • Symptoms of serious allergic reactions to JARDIANCE may include: skin rash, raised red patches on your skin (hives), swelling of the face, lips, tongue, and throat that may cause difficulty breathing or swallowing. If you have any of these symptoms, stop taking JARDIANCE and contact your doctor or go to the nearest emergency room right away.
  • Do not take JARDIANCE if you have severe kidney problems or are on dialysis.

What should I tell my doctor before using JARDIANCE?

Tell your doctor if you have kidney problems. Your doctor may do blood tests to check your kidneys before and during your treatment with JARDIANCE. Also tell your doctor if you have liver problems; have a history of urinary tract infections or problems with urination; are going to have surgery; are eating less due to illness, surgery, or a change in your diet; have or have had problems with your pancreas, including pancreatitis or surgery on your pancreas; drink alcohol very often, or drink a lot of alcohol in the short term (“binge” drinking); have any other medical conditions; are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. It is unknown if JARDIANCE will harm your unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding, or plan to breastfeed. It is unknown if JARDIANCE passes into your breast milk.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. Especially tell your doctor if you take water pills (diuretics) or medicines that can lower your blood sugar such as insulin.

What are other possible side effects of JARDIANCE?

  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia): if you take JARDIANCE with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as sulfonylurea or insulin, your risk of low blood sugar is higher. The dose of your sulfonylurea or insulin may need to be lowered. Symptoms of low blood sugar may include headache, drowsiness, weakness, dizziness, confusion, irritability, hunger, fast heartbeat, sweating, shaking or feeling jittery.
  • Kidney Problems. Sudden kidney injury has happened in people taking JARDIANCE. Talk to your doctor right away if you reduce the amount you eat or drink, or if you lose liquids; for example, from vomiting, diarrhea, or being in the sun too long.
  • Increased fats in your blood (cholesterol).

The most common side effects of JARDIANCE include urinary tract infections and yeast infections in females.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1‑800‑FDA‑1088.
