What is Invokana®?
Invokana® (canagliflozin) is a drug manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. It was developed to help Type 2 diabetes patients manage their blood sugar levels. Compared to other Type 2 diabetes medications, Invokana® is relatively new to the market. It was first approved by the FDA at the end of March 2013. That same year, the FDA began to receive reports of serious side effects. On December 4, 2015, the FDA required Invokana® to include a label warning the public of the serious side effects.
Side Effects of Invokana®
Those side effects include ketoacidosis resulting in hospitalization or death, renal failure in diabetics with no previous kidney issues, acute kidney damage in diabetics with no previous kidney issues, strokes, blood clots, urosepsis, severe kidney infections that require hospitalization, and amputation. Diabetics already have a higher risk of kidney issues than non-diabetics. Diabetics already worry about ketoacidosis. Most wouldn’t take a medication to control their diabetes if they knew it would increase the risk of those things happening. Most diabetics would not want to take a medication that could increase the likelihood that they would need an amputation.
Drug companies are supposed to be held to higher standards than private citizens. They should be honest when discussing side effects. Yet, many drug companies get in trouble for inaccurate marketing. Many Invokana® lawsuits allege that Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Johnson & Johnson knew or should have known about these deadly and life altering side effects.
