How XIGDUO XR May Help


How XIGDUO XR May Help

Learn how XIGDUO (zig-DOO-oh) XR may help you achieve your A1C goal

Your A1C test gives you and your doctor a snapshot of your average blood sugar control for the past 2 to 3 months, which helps you see how your current type 2 diabetes treatment plan has been working.

XIGDUO XR is a combination of two therapies in a single daily dose proven to significantly lower A1C. When combined with diet and exercise, taking XIGDUO XR may help you get closer to achieving your A1C goal. Because individual responses to the same medicine may vary, not everyone taking XIGDUO XR will experience the same results. Your results may be different.

Do not take XIGDUO XR if you have moderate to severe kidney problems or are on dialysis. Your healthcare provider should do blood tests to check how well your kidneys are working before and during your treatment with XIGDUO XR.

In a clinical trial, XIGDUO XR lowered A1C approximately 50% more than metformin alone

Although it’s not a weight-loss or blood-pressure drug, XIGDUO XR may help people lose weight—on average 3%—and lower their systolic blood pressure.§ Individual results may vary

Serious side effects can happen in people who take XIGDUO XR, including dehydration (the loss of body water and salt) which may cause you to feel dizzy, faint, lightheaded, or weak, especially when you stand up (orthostatic hypotension). You may be at a higher risk of dehydration if you have low blood pressure, take medicines to lower your blood pressure, including water pills (diuretics), are 65 years of age or older, are on a low-salt diet, or have kidney problems. Talk to your doctor about what you can do to prevent dehydration.
