Metformin reduces the amount of sugar absorbed by the digestive system and made by the liver, and helps your body to better respond to its own insulin.

Dapagliflozin helps remove some sugar through the urine.

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.

XIGDUO XR works with multiple areas of your body to reduce and remove some sugar
