What is Onglyza used for?

Onglyza is an oral anti-diabetic medicine that regulates insulin production in our body after meals. The orally-active ingredient Saxagliptin inhibits the action of the DPP-4 (dipeptidyl peptidase-4) enzyme that destroys the incretin hormone. Incretin is linked to insulin production. It reduces glucose synthesis in the liver.
The drug is sparingly soluble in water at normal temperatures and highly soluble in many organic solvents.
Saxagliptin is an inhibitor that increases insulin production inside the body, triggered by high blood sugar. It is used for treating diabetic ketoacidosis and type I diabetes when the body fails to produce insulin naturally. Diabetics are likely to develop several life-threatening complications, such as blindness, stroke, heart disease, nerve damage, kidney problems, sexual inability, etc. due to high blood sugar levels. Anti-diabetes therapy involves the use of Saxagliptin, along with a controlled diet and regular exercise to manage diabetes symptoms.

How should Onglyza medicine be used?

An Onglyza tablet is swallowed orally. Do not chew, break or crush it. Take it with water once a day, with or without food. Stop taking the medicine if you develop an infection, fever, or flu-like symptoms.
Hypoglycemia or low blood sugar is a common occurrence in diabetes. The symptoms include hunger, pale and dry skin, headache, dizziness, sweating, loss of concentration, and shakiness. Keep fruit juices, non-diet soda, and non-fattening candies to cope with sudden dips in blood sugar.
In case of severe hypoglycemia, take a glucagon injection.

What if I miss the dose of Onglyza?

Do not skip a dose or take an extra dose without consulting the doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Have it with food, or as instructed. For best results, take the medicine at the same time every day.
In the case of an overdose, seek immediate medical help at 911 or 1-800-222-1222 (Poison Helpline). The symptoms of drug overdose include weakness, tremors, hypoglycemia, sweating, incoherent speech, irregular heartbeat, vomiting, seizures, nausea, unconsciousness, and rapid breathing.

Philip Stein

I have dealt with these people for well over three years and I can honestly say that they have provided excellent service and amazing prices for the medications I receive. I would suggest anyone interested in reducing the cost of their medications that they get online with offshore Cheap meds

James Hymer

United States

OCM is, in my opinion, the very best place to shop for meds online. They sell top quality medicine at an extremely lower price than I get with my insurance. Delivery is fast considering where it comes from offshore. For me, this is the only place to shop for my particule medicine needs.

Mike Hamrick

United States

This is the best place I’ve ever bought meds from. They are honest and affordable. I have the greatest respect for this organization.

Dave Triffo

United States

I've used Offshore Cheap Meds for over 10 years. The medication works great and the pricing can't be beat. I highly recommend them.

Mike Pate

United States

Primarily I was looking for quality meds, FDA approved, and at a price that was reasonable since BC/BS decided that my need for medication was not worth their inclusion of what I needed in my drug plan. The meds from Offshore Cheap Meds cost me $430.00 for a NINETY day supply. Buying this medication without the help of my health insurance here in the USA costs $1325.00 per MONTH, same pills.

I have been a customer since 2017. I have always been satisfied with this pharmacy. The personnel are knowledgable and helpful. I completely recommend OFFSHORE!


United States

Patient, pleasant and helpful staff. OCM will help you through the original order and help you with expired prescriptions with your doctor's office. Delivery comes to your mailbox, which makes it easier to get your medications.

James Legault

United States

I can't afford to pay the prices the US is charging me for my lifesaving medicine. Even my insurance (Express Scripts) won't help to reduce the price. OCM is a godsend! Their price is saves me over 80% of what Express Scripts and all other US pharmacies charge. I will continue to order from them and highly recommend this company!

Joe Osborne

United States

Like many of us I was concerned about ordering online from a pharmacy that I had no prior knowledge of their history. I did provide the prescription as requested. I ordered the expensive meds at a very reduced price compared to the prices from Publix and Walmart. The Meds were delivered timely and obviously produced by the same pharmaceutical company. I was very happy with my experience with this company.

Sandy Marrs

United States

This is the 2nd time I have ordered meds and am very pleased. The website is easy to order on, the company emails you when they get the order, when they get the prescription, when they are working to fill the order and finally when it ships with a tracking number. That's a least 3 emails with good information for the customer. The shipping time has been much less than the website states ( to Texas) which is Great. Thank you for saving me alot of money and I will continue to order my inhalor every 3 months
