Interesting article regarding use of this drug

Sodium glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, originally developed for the treatment of type-2 diabetes, have shown efficacy in improving cardiovascular outcomes in patients with heart failure (both in heart failure with reduced and preserved ejection fraction), with and without diabetes. Additional evidence has been accumulating on the favorable effects of SGLT2 inhibitors in other cardiovascular pathologies.

Every drug I know of has side effects. Even tylenol, aspirin. Always weight the beneifts vs the risks.
