Oxra 10 mg
Oxra 10 mg is a prescription drug used to control blood sugar levels in adult patients with Type 2 diabetes. It contains the active ingredient Dapagliflozin, which is a part of a new class of glucose-lowering drugs that work in the kidney to inhibit the function of a protein called SGLT2.
