Need more data: Hi. Depending on how high your sugars are, you may be better off using the Farxiga 10 mg dose than the 5 mg. The only drug you're on that can cause hypoglycemia is glimepiride, so don't get low. But without knowing your A1c (and BG data if available), I can't say if you're likely to be controlled. Good luck!
