Hello friends! Is anybody taking Farxiga? My neph prescribed it; however, insurance denied it bc I am currently on immunos. Has anybody had any luck obtaining approval of this med?

  • I am almost 4 years post liver transplant and have diabetes and elevated blood pressure. As part of trying to preserve my kidneys my primary physician has placed me on Farxiga. I have to make sure I drink fluids constantly and my kidney function levels are checked frequently as are my liver enzymes. A year and a halk in my kidney functions have improved 10 points and diabets is well controlled with blood sugars in 5.2 range. This drug has been a positive game changer for me.

  • Farxiga, Invokana, and others in its class carry the warning about dehydration and therefore may cause more of a risk for kidney transplant recipients, as say Trulicity would. Your nephrologist knows you best, so follow their advice, but this is likely why insurance is getting in the way.
