DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Recommended Dosage
The recommended dose of JARDIANCE is 10 mg once daily in the morning, taken with or without food. In patients tolerating JARDIANCE, the dose may be increased to 25 mg.

In patients with volume depletion, correcting this condition prior to initiation of JARDIANCE is recommended.

Patients with Renal Impairment
Assessment of renal function is recommended prior to initiation of JARDIANCE and periodically thereafter.

JARDIANCE should not be initiated in patients with an eGFR less than 45 mL/min/1.73 m2.

No dose adjustment is needed in patients with an eGFR greater than or equal to 45 mL/min/1.73 m2.

JARDIANCE should be discontinued if eGFR is persistently less than 45 mL/min/1.73 m2

DOSAGE FORMS AND STRENGTHS

JARDIANCE tablets available as:
  • 10 mg pale yellow, round, biconvex and bevel-edged, film-coated tablets debossed with “S 10” on one side and the Boehringer Ingelheim company symbol on the other side.

INDICATIONS, LIMITATIONS OF USE AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

INDICATIONS AND LIMITATIONS OF USE

JARDIANCE is indicated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular (CV) death in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus and established CV disease.

JARDIANCE is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.

JARDIANCE is not recommended for patients with type 1 diabetes or for the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

CONTRAINDICATIONS: JARDIANCE should not be used in patients with a history of serious hypersensitivity to JARDIANCE or in patients with severe renal impairment, end-stage renal disease, or dialysis.

WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS

Hypotension: Empagliflozin causes intravascular volume contraction and symptomatic hypotension may occur. Before initiating JARDIANCE, assess and correct volume status in the elderly, and in patients with renal impairment, low systolic blood pressure, or on diuretics. Monitor for hypotension.

Ketoacidosis: Ketoacidosis, a serious life-threatening condition requiring urgent hospitalization has been identified in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus receiving SGLT2 inhibitors, including empagliflozin. Fatal cases of ketoacidosis have been reported in patients taking empagliflozin. Patients who present with signs and symptoms of metabolic acidosis should be assessed for ketoacidosis, even if blood glucose levels are less than 250 mg/dL. If suspected, discontinue JARDIANCE, evaluate, and treat promptly. Before initiating JARDIANCE, consider risk factors for ketoacidosis. Patients may require monitoring and temporary discontinuation in situations known to predispose to ketoacidosis.

Acute Kidney Injury and Impairment in Renal Function: Empagliflozin causes intravascular volume contraction and can cause renal impairment. Acute kidney injury requiring hospitalization and dialysis have been identified in patients taking SGLT2 inhibitors, including empagliflozin; some reports involved patients younger than 65 years of age. Before initiating JARDIANCE, consider factors that may predispose patients to acute kidney injury. Consider temporary discontinuation in settings of reduced oral intake or fluid losses. Monitor patients for signs and symptoms of acute kidney injury. If it occurs, discontinue JARDIANCE and treat promptly.

Empagliflozin increases serum creatinine and decreases eGFR. Patients with hypovolemia may be more susceptible to these changes. Before initiating JARDIANCE, evaluate renal function and monitor thereafter. More frequent monitoring is recommended in patients with eGFR <60 mL/min/1.73 m2. Discontinue JARDIANCE in patients with a persistent eGFR <45 mL/min/1.73 m2.

Urosepsis and Pyelonephritis: Serious urinary tract infections including urosepsis and pyelonephritis requiring hospitalization have been identified in patients receiving SGLT2 inhibitors, including empagliflozin. Treatment with SGLT2 inhibitors increases the risk for urinary tract infections. Evaluate for signs and symptoms of urinary tract infections and treat promptly.

Hypoglycemia: The use of JARDIANCE in combination with insulin or insulin secretagogues can increase the risk of hypoglycemia. A lower dose of insulin or the insulin secretagogue may be required.

Genital Mycotic Infections: Empagliflozin increases the risk for genital mycotic infections, especially in patients with prior infections. Monitor and treat as appropriate.

Increased Low-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C): Monitor and treat as appropriate.

MOST COMMON ADVERSE REACTIONS (≥5%): Urinary tract infections and female genital mycotic infections

DRUG INTERACTIONS: Coadministration with diuretics may enhance the potential for volume depletion.

USE IN SPECIAL POPULATIONS

Pregnancy: JARDIANCE is not recommended, especially during the second and third trimesters.
Lactation: JARDIANCE is not recommended while breastfeeding.
Geriatric Use: JARDIANCE is expected to have diminished efficacy in elderly patients with renal impairment. Renal function should be assessed more frequently in elderly patients. The incidence of volume depletion-related adverse reactions and urinary tract infections increased in patients ≥75 years treated with empagliflozin.
