What is Xigduo-XR (dapagliflozin/metformin)?

Xigduo-XR (dapagliflozin/metformin) is an oral diabetes medication that helps relieve symptoms by keeping blood sugar levels under control. “XR” indicates that this medication is an extended-release tablet. The first active ingredient in Xigduo-XR is dapagliflozin, which helps the kidneys remove glucose from the bloodstream.

The second active ingredient is metformin, which lowers glucose production in the liver and prevents the intestines from absorbing too much glucose. Xigduo-XR can be used alongside diet and exercise improvements to help control type 2 diabetes. This drug is not for treating type 1 diabetes.

I love Canada Pharmacy Delivery! I was very apprehensive at first. I wasn't sure how it would work or what I would get. But I did research and Canada Pharmacy Delivery got high ratings, so I took the plunge! They have been wonderful! If I need to talk to a person on the phone, they are friendly and knowledgeable. Usually, it is a matter of emailing in my prescription refill order. It does take some time, so you have to be patient, but my prescriptions always arrive as ordered and packaged beautifully! I highly recommend this company!

Canada pharmacy always gave me excellent service. Most recently the us post office lost my order. The pharmacy promptly replaced my order no charge and my follow up order was received in less than a month when it had been taking about 2 months. I am highly satisfied.
