What Is Jardiance?
Jardiance (empagliflozin) is a drug of the gliflozin class used to treat Type 2 diabetes. It was developed by Boehringer Ingelheim. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved dapagliflozin in 2014 for glycemic control, along with diet and exercise, in adults with Type 2 diabetes.

|Yeast infection||Low Blood Sugar|
|Nausea||Upper Respiratory Tract Infection|
|High Cholesterol||Joint Pain|
|Increased Urination||Urinary Tract Infection|
|Thirst||Low Blood Pressure (Hypotension)|
Are There Any Jardiance Lawsuits or Recalls?
As Jardiance is a new drug, there are no recalls or lawsuits yet. However, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning that the type 2 diabetes medicines, which include Jardiance, may lead to ketoacidosis, a serious condition where the body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones that may require hospitalization.
The FDA says that patients should pay close attention for any signs of ketoacidosis and seek medical attention immediately if they experience symptoms such as difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion, and unusual fatigue or sleepiness.
Jardiance is an SGLT2 inhibitor, which is a class of prescription medicines for use with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. SGLT2 inhibitors lower blood sugar by causing the kidneys to remove sugar from the body through the urine.
What Makes Me Eligible for an Jardiance Lawsuit?
The manufacturers of SGLT2 Inhibitors have been the subject of litigation because of the side effects caused by their drugs.
The national Invokana lawsuit alleges that the manufacturers and marketers of SGLT2 Inhibitors failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of kidney failure, myocardial infarction (heart attacks), other cardiovascular issues, and ketoacidosis.
The lawsuit states that if the manufacturers and marketers had properly warned of the risks, patients would have been prescribed and taken a substitute medication for their diabetes and would have had their health monitored on a more routine basis for potential signs of heart issues, renal impairment, and high level of ketones.
If you suffered severe complications from taking an SGLT2 Inhibitor, you may be entitled to compensation. Below is the criteria required to file an SGLT2 Inhibitor lawsuit:
- Patient has taken Invokana, Invokamet, Farxiga, Glyxambi, Jardiance, or Xigduo XR and suffered one or more of the following:
- Kidney failure
