Invokana

The FDA is now warning patients that Invokana (canagliflozin), a diabetes drug, has been known to cause high levels of acid in the blood, which can lead to life-threatening complications.

Some of the dangerous side effects include:

  • Heart attacks
  • Ketoacidosis
  • Kidney disease
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Urosepsis

New evidence suggests that the drug’s manufacturer may have known of Invokana’s risks but they did not warn doctors or patients. Invokana lawyers argue that if the drug makers had released warnings about these side effects, doctors may have prescribed alternate medications for patients with type 2 diabetes.

An Invokana lawyer says doctors would have also monitored a patient’s health more closely for potential signs of these dangerous side effects.

Over the past two years, the FDA has identified more than 90 cases of diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney infections and blood infections among Invokana users. Despite these incidents and the known risks associated with the drug, Invokana’s makers continued to promote the drug as safe and effective.

Invokana has also produced nearly $1 billion in sales each year since it was released in 2013.

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
