STOP the Saxagliptin immediately and call your doctor at first opportunity !!

Blood in the urine and bladder pain are reported as potential side effects of this drug..

Follow up with your doctor on the bleeding in the urine however as well ..

It is possible that other issues could be going on or potential risk ( such as a clot blocking the bladder for example)

I hope that this information is helpful for you!
