Farxiga drug class
This brand-name prescription medication belongs to a class of drugs called antidiabetics and sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. This medicine works on the proximal renal tubules where sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) is expressed. SGLT2 is responsible for the reabsorption of glucose back into the body.
The inhibition of SGLT2 by Farxiga decreases the reabsorption of glucose from the proximal tubules, which results in an increased amount of glucose removed from the body through the urine. This helps in lowering glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
Farxiga also reduces sodium reabsorption and increases the amount of sodium delivered to the distal tubule which influences some physiological functions such as reducing the pressure under which the heart fills (preload) and reducing the resistance the heart has to pump against (afterload). Also, inhibiting the sympathetic nervous system that is associated with heart failure, decreases intraglomerular pressure, and activates the tubuloglomerular feedback response for correcting glomerular hyperfiltration.
Farxiga comes as a film-coated tablet taken orally and is available in two strengths: 5mg and 10 mg.
Before you start to use this medication, assess renal function, and then as clinically indicated, as well as, assess the volume status, and if needed, correct volume depletion.
The recommended initial dose to improve glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with an eGFR of >45 is 5mg orally once daily. The dose can be adjusted to 10 mg orally once a day for additional glycemic control if 5mg per day is tolerated. The recommended maximum dose is 10 mg orally once daily.
For those with an eGFR of 25 to less than 45, the recommended dose is 10 mg orally once daily.
For all other indications, the recommended initial dose is 10 mg orally once a day.
