What Is Xigduo SR?

Xigduo SR (Dapagliflozin & Metformin HCL) combines two different medications to help prevent cardiovascular complications and control blood glucose levels in certain adults with type 2 diabetes. It is used in conjunction with diet and other lifestyle changes to slow or prevent disease progression.

Xigduo SR is taken by mouth with the first meal of the day. It is also available in an extended-release form (Xigduo XR).

What Does Simplefill Provide?

Type 2 diabetes is a progressive disease that can eventually lead to type 1 diabetes, which requires insulin therapy. Complications can arise as type 2 diabetes worsens, particularly for patients diagnosed with or at risk for cardiovascular disease. The prospect of complications such as neuropathy, vision loss, heart attack, stroke, circulation problems, and even amputations can be very stressful for patients and their families. So can the financial burden caused by the high cost of Xigduo SR. 

Fortunately, there is a solution, though it’s not as widely known as it should be. Part of our mission is to raise awareness of the existence of patient assistance programs. The other part is making connections between people who need help paying for their costly prescriptions and the programs and organizations offering such assistance. 

How Does Xigduo SR Work?

Xigduo SR is classified as a cardio diabetic drug. One component, dapagliflozin, reduces the risk of hospitalization for heart failure in patients who have both type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease or multiple risk factors for cardiovascular disease. The other component drug, metformin, decreases the production of glucose in the liver and delays the absorption of glucose from the intestines while increasing sensitivity to insulin.
