Canagliflozin and metformin are oral diabetes medicines that help control blood sugar levels. Canagliflozin works by helping the kidneys get rid of glucose from your bloodstream. Metformin lowers glucose production in the liver and also causes your intestines to absorb less glucose.

Canagliflozin and metformin is a combination medicine used together with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes. Canagliflozin is not for treating type 1 diabetes.
