Kombiglyze XR is a combination of metformin (a biguanide) and saxagliptin (a DPP4 inhibitor). Kombiglyze XR works by lowering the amount of sugar made by your liver, decreasing the amount of sugar absorbed by your intestine, increasing the amount of insulin your body makes, and helps your body respond better to insulin.
However, research shows that type 2 diabetes drug Kombiglyze XR (saxagliptin and metformin) may cause heart failure or other cardiovascular injuries in some patients. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 30 million Americans have diabetes and 84 million have pre-diabetes. Metformin—one of the drugs found in combination in Kombiglyze—is among the top 10 most popular prescription drugs taken by Americans. Analysts also predict that Onglyza (saxagliptin), Kombiglyze’s sister drug, could reach $1.8 billion in sales in 2018.
In 2015, roughly 386,000 people were prescribed Onglyza or Kombiglyze XR, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported. Given that so many people take these drugs, any side effects they may cause that are severe enough to hospitalize patients should be treated with concern. Dozens of patients are filing lawsuits against Kombiglyze’s manufacturer AstraZeneca and its previous partner Bristol-Myers Squibb alleging that the companies failed to adequately test the drugs’ safety prior to selling it, which ultimately caused their cardiovascular injuries.
