Invokana (canagliflozin) is an oral diabetes medicine that helps control blood sugar levels. Canagliflozin works by helping the kidneys get rid of glucose from your bloodstream. Controlling high blood sugar helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, and sexual function problems. Invokana is used together with diet and exercise to treat type 2 diabetes. Invokana is not for treating type 1 diabetes.
The Invokana lawsuit states the manufacturer of Invokana failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of kidney failure, myocardial infarction (heart attacks), other cardiovascular issues and ketoacidosis. The lawsuits state that if the manufacturer had properly warned of the risks, patients would have been prescribed a different medication for their diabetes, and certainly would have had their health monitored on a more frequent basis for potential signs of heart issues, renal impairment, and high level of ketones.
Side Effects, Problems and Risks of Invokana
The most serious potential side effects, problems and risks caused through the use Invokana are myocardial infarction (heart attack), kidney damage and ketoacidosis.
(commonly known as a heart attack) is the irreversible death of cells within the heart caused by a restriction of blood. It occurs when there is a blockage in the arteries preventing blood from reaching portions of the heart, and thus oxygen and nutrients no longer reach the heart muscle. Basically a portion of the heart is being starved of oxygen and nutrients, a condition called “cardiac ischemia.” If this condition lasts too long, the starved heart tissue dies.
is a medical condition where high levels of ketones are produced in the body. Ketoacidosis can result in a patient suffering a diabetic coma, extended hospitalization, and even death. Ketoacidosis develops when the body is unable to produce enough insulin, which plays a major role in helping sugar (glucose) enter cells, and provides needed energy to the muscles and other tissues. Without enough insulin, the body breaks down fat as an alternative source of energy, which causes a buildup of toxic acids in the bloodstream called ketones. Excess ketones result in ketoacidosis if untreated.
If you are currently taking Invokana or another SGLT2 inhibitor (such as Invokamet, Farxiga, Xigduo XR, Jardiance or Glyxambia), you should pay close attention for any signs of kidney failure, heart problems and acidosis and seek immediate medical attention if you experience symptoms such as chest pain, dizziness, faintness, increased heart rate, increased pulmonary rate, difficulty breathing, hyperventilation, weakness, changes in urination, anorexia, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion, and unusual fatigue or sleepiness. Do not stop or change your diabetes medication without first talking to your medical provider, but be especially careful to take appropriate measures to monitor for signs of kidney issues, heart problems, and acidosis, and immediately seek appropriate medical care if you have any concerns.
Warning:You should not use Invokana if you have severe kidney disease, if you are on dialysis, or if you are in a state of diabetic ketoacidosis
Do I need a lawyer?
Expert witness fees are very expensive. They can often cost several thousand dollars per day. The expert witness fees must be paid for consulting, which includes reviewing records, examining a patient, and discussing findings with the lawyer, as well as for depositions and for trial. Lawyers who represent plaintiffs on a contingency basis (meaning the lawyer only gets paid if you win) usually hire the experts for the case. Without a lawyer to advance these costs, you may find yourself unable to afford the experts you need to prove your case.
