Effect/Efficacy

Usage/Dosage

In general, for adults, take 1 tablet (50 mg of ipragliflozin) at a time, once a day before or after breakfast. If the effect of this medicine is insufficient, it may be increased up to 2 tablets (100 mg) once a day while carefully following the course of the disease. If you have a severe hepatic impairment, the dosage may be started with low doses. Strictly follow the instructions.
If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. You should never take two doses at one time.
If you accidentally take more than your prescribed dose, consult with your doctor or pharmacist.
Do not stop taking this medicine unless your doctor instructs you to do so.

Cautions

Strictly follow the instructions on dietary/exercise therapy.
This medicine may cause hypoglycemic symptoms. Be aware of operating in potentially hazardous activities such as driving a car and working at heights.
Take foods containing sugar or drink juice if any hypoglycemic symptoms occur. If you are taking in conjunction with α-glucosidase inhibitors (medicines which delay the uptake of glucose) and hypoglycemic symptoms develop, you must take in glucose.
Take a larger amount of water, since this medicine may cause dehydration. Intake of water or tea is desirable, since drink including sugar such as isotonic drink may increase blood glucose.
Do not stop taking water or decrease the amount of water on your own judgment.
Stop taking the medicine if you have repeated diarrhea/vomiting or cannot take food or water continuously due to decreased appetite.
