…or try your luck with JARDIANCE? What the hell is JARDIANCE, you’re no doubt wondering. Well, you may know it by its street name, empagliflozin, a new prescription drug supposed to lower blood sugar. Among other things. The following is from a three-page ad in this week’s Time:
Women who take JARDIANCE may get vaginal yeast infections. Talk to your doctor if you experience vaginal odor, white or yellowish vaginal discharge (discharge may be lumpy or look like cottage cheese), and/or vaginal itching.
Men who take JARDIANCE may get a yeast infection of the skin around the penis, especially uncircumcised males and those with chronic infections. Talk to your doctor if you experience redness, itching or swelling of the penis, rash of the penis, and/or pain in the skin around the penis.
…If you have any of these symptoms, stop taking JARDIANCE and contact your doctor or go to the nearest emergency room immediately.
