Synjardy (empagliflozin plus metformin) from Boehringer has been granted marketing authorisation by the European Commission for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in the European Union (EU). Synjardy is a new single-pill combination therapy from the Boehringer Ingelheim and Eli Lilly and Company diabetes alliance. Synjardy combines empagliflozin, a sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, and metformin hydrochloride (HCl), commonly prescribed for the treatment of T2D. Empagliflozin was approved in the EU in May 2014 and is available in many countries as an oral, once-daily tablet, marketed as Jardiance.
