How do I take it?
JARDIANCE is a once-daily pill taken in the morning, available in both 10 mg and 25 mg doses. Make sure you take JARDIANCE exactly as your doctor prescribes.
Can I take it with other common type 2 diabetes medications?
Ask your doctor about any treatments you are currently taking. JARDIANCE can be taken along with many common type 2 diabetes medications, such as metformin, sulfonylurea, pioglitazone, and insulin.
If you take JARDIANCE with another medicine that can cause low blood sugar, such as sulfonylurea or insulin, your risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is higher. The dose of your sulfonylurea or insulin may need to be lowered—so be sure to tell your doctor about all of the medicines you take.
When could I start to see results?
When it comes to results, everyone’s experience can be different. So be sure to talk to your doctor about tracking your personal A1C goals. In clinical trials of adults with type 2 diabetes, some patients experienced lower A1C numbers 24 weeks into their treatment.*
*In a 24‑week clinical study of adults with type 2 diabetes, 12% of people taking placebo saw their A1C drop below 7% by 24 weeks, compared with 35% of people taking JARDIANCE 10 mg and 44% of those taking JARDIANCE 25 mg.

Common Side Effects
What about the common side effects?
The most common side effects of JARDIANCE include urinary tract infections in males and females and yeast infections in females.
Make sure you ask your doctor about all the possible safety concerns as you consider adding JARDIANCE to your routine.
How can I keep track of my progress?
Just like your every day, type 2 diabetes has its ups and downs. Take each day as it comes and don’t let yesterday’s setbacks get in the way of today’s progress.
Be sure to measure your blood sugar as your doctor recommends. At your next appointment, your doctor can update you on your A1C and help you identify trends in your blood glucose.
Ask your doctor what else you should know as you start treatment with JARDIANCE.
