Anyone on Empagliflozin, how does it affect you? Side effects?

3 Replies

Severe and debilitating Thrush. I’ve had to stop taking these tablets.

Yes, I’ve been on it for 5 years. The only side effect I have is it makes you pee a lot.

I’ve had back pain in the kidney region! Yes, I checked the side effects and the LIST! The nurse started me off on 10mg saying she was doing this to prevent me getting urinary infection. If I was put straight on 25mg like the drs do,I’d get a urinary infection. This I found from the Jardinace web site seems to say 10mg is the normal but you ‘can’ increase to 25mg IF necessary!! Well, I am NOT amused, getting aches and pains too, so I’ve cut it in half.
