Jardiance (empagliflozin) is an oral type 2 diabetes medication belonging to the drug class SGLT-2 inhibitors. This class of drugs prevents the kidneys from reabsorbing glucose back into the bloodstream. This causes lower blood glucose levels because the excess glucose is removed through the urine. Jardiance is approved for treating type 2 diabetes in adults only. Jardiance cannot be used to treat type 1 diabetes. Empagliflozin may also lower the risk of hospitalization and death caused by heart failure..

Severe side effects include:
When does Jardiance start to work?
Some patients experience improvements in symptoms within the first one to two weeks of treatment. However, because Jardiance (empagliflozin) is a long-term diabetes medication, its full benefits usually take up to 24 weeks to take effect. As every patient responds differently, how quickly Jardiance takes to work for you will depend on the other medications you are taking, your health history, and any underlying conditions you currently have. By monitoring your symptoms, your doctor will determine if Jardiance is having the intended benefits on your treatment.
How long does Jardiance stay in your system?
Typically, Jardiance will clear out from your system within a few days. The half-life of empagliflozin is 12 hours, so most of this drug is cleared within 24 hours but may take up to several days for it to clear completely. When this drug clears from your body, its side effects (such as increased urination) should discontinue within a day or two.
How can you avoid yeast infections on Jardiance?
Although yeast infections are a common side effect of Jardiance (empagliflozin), you can lower your risk of contracting this infection by keeping your underwear clean and breathable. Changing into new underwear regularly stops bacterial overgrowth because it prevents the area from being moist for an extended time. Eating a healthy diet can also boost your immune system and help your body fight against infections.
