Answers (1)

Official Answer by Drugs.com 5 Jul 2017

Qtern is a combination drug that contains 10 mg of dapagliflozin and 5 mg of saxagliptin for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Qtern is used in addition to diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults who have inadequate control with dapagliflozin or who are already treated with dapagliflozin and saxagliptin. Dapagliflozin is classified as a sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor and saxagliptin is a dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor. These agents have a complementary mechanism of action to control blood sugar in type 2 diabetes.
