Dapagliflozin Tablets are used by adults with type 2 diabetes in addition to diet, exercise, and occasionally additional drugs to lower their blood sugar levels (a condition in which blood sugar is excessively high because the body does not manufacture or use insulin normally). It is also used to lower the likelihood that persons with type 2 diabetes who also have heart and blood vessel disease or who have several risk factors for heart and blood vessel disease would need to be hospitalized for heart failure. 

Adults with heart failure who wish to lower their risk of hospitalization and mortality from heart and blood vessel disease can also take dapagliflozin. It is also used to lessen the chance that renal disease in individuals with the condition will worsen, that they will require hospitalization for heart failure, and that they will die from heart disease. Included in the class of drugs known as sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors is dapagliflozin. By encouraging the kidneys to excrete more glucose in the urine, it decreases blood sugar.
