The product liability lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation continue to investigate and take on additional claims regarding the use of INVOKANA for the management of Type 2 diabetes. The current lawsuits and claims involving Invokana allege that the drug manufacturers failed to warn physicians and patients of an increased risks of ketoacidosis, renal failure as well as leg and foot amputations.
WHAT IS INVOKANA?
Invokana is a prescribed medication which is utilized in combination with exercise to lower blood sugars as well as improve blood sugar management in adults with Type 2 diabetes. Invokana received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in March of 2013. Invokana is manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Recently, the FDA has strengthened renal warnings for diabetes medicines Invokana and Farxiga.
"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has strengthened the existing warning about the risk of acute kidney injury for the type 2 diabetes medicines canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet) and dapagliflozin (Farxiga, Xigduo XR)."
FDA has additionally revised labels of SGLT2 inhibitors [such as Invokana] which include warnings relative to too high volume of acid in the blood and urinary tract infections.
"Patients should stop taking their SGLT2 inhibitor [such as Invokana] and seek medical attention immediately if they have any symptoms of ketoacidosis, a serious condition in which the body produces high levels of blood acids called ketones."
