Is your Synjardy medication too expensive?
The average retail price for Synjardy is around $582 for 60 tablets. The price you actually pay for this medication will vary depending on your insurance coverage and the pharmacy you go to.
Synjardy coupons may be available to many patients, but even with a Synjardy coupon, you may still be paying too much.
Patients can get their Synjardy medication through Prescription Hope for the set medication access service fee of $60.00 per month per medication through Prescription Hope’s medication access service. Although Prescription Hope is not a Synjardy coupon, individuals looking for a Synjardy coupon can save more through Prescription Hope.
Here’s the Synjardy cost comparison chart:
The four options you have to save money on Synjardy
There are four main ways to save money on out-of-pocket costs when it comes to prescription medication.
- Join a healthcare plan with prescription drug coverage (Please make sure the medication you are taking is in the insurance formulary.)
- Prescription drug discount cards
- Coupon cards that are directly for the pharmaceutical manufacturer
- Patient assistance programs, which are also directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer
Now that we have given you the four main medication savings programs, there are a few hurdles to go over in each of those areas. We will be quick about this…
When you join a health insurance program, you will have high deductibles, copays, and things of that nature.
When you have prescription drug discount cards, the discounts are uneven all across the board.
Coupons sponsored directly from the pharmaceutical manufacturer specifically for brand-name medications are excellent in the short run. For the long term, there is a lot of money still left out of your pocket…
Last are the pharmaceutical manufacturer’s patient assistance programs that give medication at reduced cost to individuals who qualify, which provides unmatched medication savings for the long term.
The downside to patient assistance programs is that the first shipment of medication takes, on average, 2 to 4 weeks to reach the patient. Also, managing medication orders and refills can be a daunting task, especially with the shipping times.
Do I qualify for Synjardy patient assistance programs?
Qualifying for Synjardy patient assistance programs is based on household income guidelines. Every patient assistance program uses different criteria for qualification, so we use the information below as general guidelines:
- An individual earning up to $50,000 a year may qualify
- Households of 2 individuals with a combined income up to $70,000 a year may qualify
- Guidelines can increase in families making up to $200,000 per year
Prescription Hope suggests that anyone looking to save money on Synjardy submit an enrollment form.
Suppose you do not qualify to receive medication through patient assistance programs. In that case, we will never charge a service fee for that medication. Once you have been pre-qualified and your first charge has been paid but we find we can’t get your medication, you will be refunded any service fees paid for the medication.
Soon after submitting an enrollment form, we will determine whether you qualify to receive the medications you have requested for through patient assistance programs.
Suppose we find a program that will work for you. In that case, we will reach out to you for any additional information needed and reach out to your healthcare provider for the prescription.
Once we receive this information back, we immediately order your medication for you. After that, Prescription Hope works to manage medication orders, refill medications on time throughout the year, maintain up-to-date records, and renew your prescription medication’s enrollment every year.
Once your enrollment form is submitted and you are pre-qualified, the first shipment of prescription medication typically arrives within 2 to 4 weeks. We will then place refills ahead of time so that you receive your medication on a regular schedule.
During the four to six week enrollment period, we recommend that you ask your healthcare provider if they could provide you with Synjardy samples while waiting for your first shipment.
Through our program, Americans save thousands every year from the retail cost of their prescription medications through Prescription Hope. To learn more about how Prescription Hope works you can visit our website.

Synjardy: Prescribed to treat type 2 diabetes
Synjardy is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults alongside diet and exercise. It helps control blood sugar, and treatment is typically used with other medications.
Synjardy and Synjardy XR can also be used in adults with type 2 diabetes that have known cardiovascular disease. Synjardy is not prescribed to people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.
This medication belongs to a drug class called, sodium glucose-linked transporter 2 (SGLT2 inhibitors).
How Synjardy works
Synjardy combines Jardiance (empagliflozin) and metformin, which are two proven diabetes medications. They work together along with diet and exercise to lower A1C. Jardiance can also reduce the risk of cardiovascular death in adults with type 2 diabetes who also have known heart disease.
Synjardy improves your blood sugar in a few different ways. The Jardiance portion of Synjardy helps your body get rid of sugar it does not need through urination.
The metformin portion of Synjardy lowers the amount of sugar created by your liver and the amount of sugar that enters your bloodstream after a meal. The metformin portion also helps your body use more of the sugar it already has by allowing your muscles to absorb more sugar from your blood.
Jardiance has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death on its own. The ability Jardiance has when combined with metformin in Synjardy to reduce the risk of cardiovascular death has not been studied though.
High blood sugar levels can lead to a buildup of plaque in your blood vessels over time. This increases your chance of a heart attack, stroke, or another cardiovascular event.
Important Safety Information:
Before taking Synjardy:
- Tell your healthcare provider about the history of your medical conditions, including if you have kidney problems, liver problems, heart problems, pancreas problems, type 1 diabetes, or a history of urinary tract infections.
- Notify your healthcare provider if you have a change in your diet, drink alcohol often or a lot in the short term, are a premenopausal woman, are pregnant or breastfeeding, are going to have surgery, or get an injection of dye or contrast agents for an x-ray.
- Talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history before taking Synjardy to make sure it is safe for you to take.
- Tell your healthcare provider about all of the medications you are taking, including prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
Synjardy is not for everyone. Synjardy contains empagliflozin and other ingredients. Do not take Synjardy if you are allergic to any of its ingredients.
You should not take Synjardy if you have type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. Synjardy is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and type 2 diabetes patients that also have cardiovascular disease.
Women who are pregnant or may become pregnant should not take Synjardy, as it can cause harm to an unborn baby. Synjardy can also pass through breastmilk, so women should avoid breastfeeding if taking Synjardy. Talk to your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant and discuss the best options for birth control.
You should also avoid taking Synjardy if you are on dialysis or have metabolic acidosis or diabetic ketoacidosis.
Synjardy may need to be stopped if you are going to receive an injection of dye or a contrast agent for an x-ray.
Common side effects:
- Dehydration – Synjardy causes some people to suffer from dehydration or a loss of body water and salt. Dehydration can make you feel dizzy, faint, light-headed, and weak. Symptoms of dehydration may be especially felt when you stand up. Your chances of suffering from dehydration may increase if you have low blood pressure, kidney problems, are at least 65 years old, eat a low-salt diet, take medicine that lowers blood pressure, or take diuretics.
- Ketoacidosis – Ketoacidosis is a serious condition that increases ketones in your blood and urine. It can lead to hospitalization or even death. Ketoacidosis occurs in people with type 1 diabetes but can occur in people with type 2 diabetes taking Synjardy, even if your blood sugar levels are below 250 mg/dL. People taking Synjardy who are sick or had surgery during their treatment can also suffer from ketoacidosis. If you have nausea, vomiting, pain in your stomach area, tiredness, or any trouble breathing, stop taking Synjardy and call your healthcare provider right away. If possible, also check for ketones in your urine.
- Lactic acidosis – Metformin, one of the medicines used in Synjardy, can cause lactic acidosis, which is a build-up of lactic acid in your blood. This rare but serious condition is a medical emergency that must be treated in a hospital and can even cause death. Symptoms of lactic acidosis include cold hands or feet, dizziness or lightheadedness, slow or irregular heartbeat, tiredness, muscle pain, difficulty with breathing, drowsiness, stomach pain, nausea, or vomiting.
- Kidney problems – Synjardy can cause a sudden injury to your kidneys. Call your healthcare provider right away if you reduce the amount you eat or drink or lose liquids through diarrhea, vomiting, or from being in the sun too long.
- Urinary tract infections – Taking Synjardy can cause serious urinary tract infections that may require hospitalization. Tell your healthcare provider if you experience any symptoms of urinary tract infections such as a burning sensation when passing urine, needing to urinate more often, stomach or pelvis pain, or bloody urine. Some people also experience fever, back pain, nausea, or vomiting.
- Low blood sugar – Taking Synjardy in addition to another medicine that can cause low blood sugar like sulfonylurea or insulin can increase your risk of low blood sugar. You may need to lower your dose of sulfonylurea or insulin. Symptoms of low blood sugar can include headache, drowsiness, weakness, irritability, hunger, fast heartbeat, confusion, shaking or jittering, dizziness, or sweating.
- Yeast infection of the vagina or penis – Women experiencing vaginal odor, white or yellowish vaginal discharge, or vaginal itching, and men experiencing pain, redness, itching, or swelling of the penis or skin around the penis, should talk to their healthcare provider.
- Increased fats in the blood – Taking Synjardy can cause increased fat in your blood or cholesterol.
- Low vitamin B12 – Using metformin for an extended period of time can cause lower levels of Vitamin B12 in your blood, especially if you have suffered from low Vitamin B12 already. Your healthcare provider may run a blood test to check your Vitamin B12 levels.
- Allergic reactions – Swelling of the face, lips, throat, and other areas of your skin are symptoms of serious allergic reactions. Other symptoms include difficulty with swallowing and breathing and red areas on your skin such as hives. If you experience any of these symptoms, stop taking Synjardy and call your healthcare provider right away or go to the nearest emergency room.
The most common side effects of Synjardy include urinary tract infections, female genital infections, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, gas, stomach pain, indigestion, weakness, headache, stuffy or runny nose, and sore throat.
These are not all of Synjardy’s possible side effects, so ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist for more information.
Tips for taking Synjardy
Remember to measure your blood sugar as your healthcare provider recommends. Your healthcare provider can update you on your A1C and help you identify patterns in your blood sugar at your next appointment.
If your blood sugar improves after taking Synjardy, that is great, but it is still important to continue taking it. Ask your healthcare provider what you should know before treating your type 2 diabetes with Synjardy.

It may be possible. Be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about specific type 2 diabetes medications you could be taking in addition to Synjardy. Studies have shown that other type 2 diabetes medications like Sulfonylurea can be taken along with Synjardy.
