Also known as saxagliptin, onglyza is to be used with a proper diet and exercise program to control high blood sugars in people with type 2 diabetes. Doing this helps prevent damage in the kidney, prevent blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems.
Onglyza is taken orally and can be done with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily.
There aren’t many serious side effects when taking this medication. However, if any rare serious side effects such as joint pain, unusual skin blisters, signs of heart failure (such as shortness of breath, swelling ankles/feet, unusual tiredness, unusual/sudden weight gain), inform your doctor right away.
Onglyza works by increasing levels of a substance known as incretins. A natural substance that helps control blood sugar by increasing the insulin release, especially after a meal. The substance also decreases the amount of sugar your liver makes.
