Background on Onglyza: What It Is & How It Works

Classified as a dipeptidyl peptidase-4I (DPP-4) inhibitor drug, Onglyza can control blood sugar levels by helping the pancreas release more insulin while stopping the liver from producing excess sugar. Onglyza is prescribed along with dietary changes and exercise.

Common, milder side effects associated with taking Onglyza include (but may not be limited to):

  • Cough
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sore throat and runny nose.

Onglyza should not be prescribed to those with Type-1 diabetes or patients with a history of pancreatitis.

In addition to Onglyza, AstraZeneca makes a similar drug containing the same active ingredient, saxagliptin. That drug, Kombiglyze XR, is also prescribed to Type-2 diabetes patients for glycemic control.
