10 Jardiance side effects you should know about

The nonstop ad campaign insists "Jardiance is really swell." What's the rest of the story?

GOOD RX – Below is a list of 10 Jardiance side effects you should be aware of.

1. Urinary tract infections

Because Jardiance makes you urinate extra glucose, it may put you at risk for urinary tract infections (UTIs). Glucose is like food for bacteria that cause UTIs. If left untreated, UTIs can lead to severe complications, such as kidney infections.

2. Genital infections

Another common Jardiance side effect is fungal (“yeast”) infections on or around the genitals. Vaginal yeast infections tend to happen most often. But genital yeast infections in males can also happen around the penis and scrotum.

“In studies, genital yeast infections were one of the most common side effects in people taking Jardiance. This occurred more often in females, but it also occurred in some males.” – HEALTHLINE,  Side Effects of Jardiance, Dec 2, 2022

5. High cholesterol

Clinical trials found that higher doses of Jardiance were linked to higher LDL levels. Your healthcare provider will monitor your cholesterol while taking Jardiance to make sure this isn’t an issue for you.

Jardiance should help lower your blood sugar if you have Type 2 diabetes. But, in some cases, it could lower your blood sugar too much (hypoglycemia).

Your risk of this is higher if you’re also taking other diabetes medications that affect your body’s insulin levels.
