For Diabetes, Type 2 “Been on Farxiga for 4 months and have had horrible constant yeast infections for past 2 months, not even prescription meds help yeast infection. A1C has not come down. Will be going off Farxiga.”

Stac (taken for 1 to 6 months) February 23, 2018

For Diabetes, Type 2 “Been on this med for a little over two months. Packed back on weight I lost on Buydureon. Not sure about A1c. The doctor hasn’t tested A1c since I started this med. I got a savings card that reduced this med to $30 a month. I can’t afford any of the other newer diabetes meds in the hundreds of dollars, so I am stuck taking this. I always get bounced off of these newer meds when the savings cards run out. I am grateful for the time I do get to take the meds due to the savings cards though. I had pretty severe itching for the first month but that has subsided dramatically. Thankfully I haven’t had any yeast infections, but I have also been taking standardized cranberry pills. I can say I am much less tired on this med than I was on a couple of the other newer meds.”

Not Feeling the Love (taken for 1 to 6 months) February 13, 2018

For Diabetes, Type 2 “It works just not liking the side effect, I literally drank a 5 gallon of water to myself. And I’m not enjoying the non stop pooping. Omg – so not worth it. I’m like a damn camel. Water, water, water and then in the bathroom. But over all blood sugar has been fairly low for me.”

For Diabetes, Type 2 “Was on it for about 4 days. Got dehydrated, malaise, and extreme nausea. I stopped taking Farxiga and went back to the previews drug I was taking. Feel much better now.”
