Hi, currently i am taking Jardiance 10mg one tablet/day.
My blood sugar level before having breakfast in the morning is around 7 - 8.
I went to klinik kesihatan and the doctor there says they do not have this brand and they give me Metformin 500mg.
May I know why the mg increase from 10mg to 500mg?
Thanks.
