Not approved in the US ... AZ and BMS try again with Forxiga in the US - PMLiVE Could be real risk ... or could be political. "Dapagliflozin works on your kidneys to increase the amount of sugar that your body removes in urine. You may be prescribed it to take on its own, or with other antidiabetic medicines."

In either case, might look at Blood Sugar 101 -- I think she suggests a 15-year post-approval rule, on medications ... I know I do!

Any medicine that includes the description "makes an organ do X" makes me want to stay away. First, what other things is it doing to that organ? Second, how long can you "bag drive" an organ before it gives out?

I searched this board and we should spell FARXIGA both ways, with the A or O so others can find it. The non-commercial name is dapagliflozin. It causes you to pee out the glucose instead of retaining it in the bloodstream. Looks like bladder problems like urinary track infections or possible bladder cancer are the primary contraindications.
