Xigduo – 60 Tablets is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes. It is used together with proper diet and regular exercise. It contains two active substances, dapagliflozin and metformin, which are part of a group of drugs called oral anti-diabetics.


Uses of Xigduo – 60 Tablets

Doctors prescribe Xigduo to help people with type 2 diabetes control their blood sugar levels. As mentioned, this medicine is a combination of two major anti-diabetes agents. Their functions are as follows:

Dapagliflozin – It works by removing excess glucose from the body through urine. This process lowers the amount of glucose in the blood. This medicine is also used to reduce the need for frequent hospitalization due to heart failure in people with type 2 diabetes.

Metformin – It works by inhibiting the production of glucose in the liver.

The combination of Dapagliflozin and Metformin prevents the onset of diabetes-related complications, such as nerve problems, loss of limbs, blindness, sexual dysfunction, and kidney damage.
