What Is This Drug?
Jardiance is an oral tablet for lowering high blood sugar level in type 2 diabetes in adults. It has empagliflozin as its active ingredient. Empagliflozin is a sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor which has a blood glucose–lowering effect. Empagliflozin does not treat diabetes but controls it. It protects against stroke, heart attack and other diabetes-related combination like kidney failure, nerve damage, and eye problems. 
Classification and Mechanism of Action
Empagliflozin is used in treating type 2 diabetes, but is not useful in type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. SGLT 2 is a predominant transporter that reabsorbs glucose before it is excreted out from the body through urine. Empagliflozin inhibits SGLT 2, thereby preventing the reabsorption of glucose into the blood circulation and lowering blood sugar level. Empagliflozin thus leads to an increase in glucose excretion through urine.

Empagliflozin 10 mg tablet should be taken by mouth once a day, in the morning, with or without food. There should be a gap of 24 hours between doses.

Warnings and Precautions

It should not be used in people with low systolic blood pressure and patients on diuretic therapy. It must be avoided in individuals below 18 years of age as no data is available on the effects of the drug on that age group. Don’t use any other medication with empagliflozin without consulting your doctor.
