Invokana, a prescription drug used to lower blood sugar in patients with Type 2 diabetes, has been linked to serious side effects like heart attacks, kidney damage, hospitalization, amputations or even death. Manufacturers Johnson & Johnson and its Janssen Pharmaceuticals unit failed to adequately warn doctors and patients about the risks, and as a result, Invokana lawsuits continue to mount in courts throughout the United States.

According to a February 2018 filing with the U.S. & Securities and Exchange Commission, the drug manufacturers have been named defendants in approximately 1,100 product liability claims involving Invokana, including hundreds of federally-filed cases and hundreds of additional lawsuits pending in state courts across the U.S. If you have suffered a serious injury as the result of Invokana, our defective drug lawyers in Pittsburgh at Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C. can help you explore your options for compensation.

Invokana Side Effects

Approved by the FDA in 2013, Invokana became the first SGLT2 inhibitor for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. SGLT2 inhibitors lower blood glucose levels by preventing the absorption of sugar by the kidneys, eliminating it by the body via urine. In 2015, the troubles started for Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors, when the FDA announced that all labels would be updated to include information about diabetic ketoacidosis, a potentially deadly complication related to the accumulation of ketones in the bloodstream, as well as life-threatening blood infections (urosepsis) and kidney infections (pyelonephritis).

Later that same year, the FDA required the manufacturers of Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors to strengthen their kidney warning labels, after these medications were linked to over 100 reports of acute kidney injuries. Then in 2017, the FDA forced Johnson & Johnson to once again update the Invokana label, this time with a warning of increased risk of leg and foot amputations. In a CANVAS clinical trial, 9 out of every 1,000 patients taking the drug had to have an amputation. While Invokana’s new warnings may help future patients avoid health issues, it may be too late for others.
