What is Synjardy? Synjardy contains a combination of empagliflozin and metformin. Empagliflozin and metformin are oral diabetes medicines that help control blood sugar levels. Empagliflozin works by helping the kidneys get rid of glucose from your bloodstream. Metformin lowers glucose production in the liver and also causes your intestines to absorb less glucose.
Synjardy is used together with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes.
Synjardy is not for treating type 1 diabetes.
