What is Motivyst (Canagliflozin) used for?

Motivyst (Canagliflozin) is prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes in adults, normally along with a diet and physical exercise to improve glycemic control:

  • As a monotheraphy drug;
  • As part of the combination therapy with other hypoglycemic medications, including insulin.

Motivyst (Canagliflozin) selectively inhibits sodium-glucose linked transporter 2 (SGLT2) located in proximal tubules and regulating glucose reabsorption, which leads to glucosuria. Glucose clearance from the blood serum causes diuretic action, resulting in systolic blood pressure. The reduction in the body weight results from the calorie loss caused by the plasma glucose decrease.

After oral administration, up to 65% of the substance is absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. The peak plasma concentration is achieved in 1-2 hours. Plasma protein binding is 99%. The substance is metabolized in liver, with the elimination halftime of 10-13 hours.

How should I use Motivyst (Canagliflozin)?

One film-coated 100 mg tablet contains 102.0 mg of canagliflozin hemihydrates as an active ingredient which is equivalent 100 mg of canagliflozin.

One film-coated 300 mg tablet contains 306.0 mg of canagliflozin hemihydrates as an active ingredient which is equivalent 300 mg of canagliflozin.
