In an ideal situation, all the medications sold should be clinically tested before being released into the market for the general public. However, such events are not new where the manufacturing company tries to pull their products off the shelves more for their profit rather than thinking about the safety of people. In such situations, patients are deprived of the intended results, as in the case of Invokana.
Invokana is a popular drug used to treat type 2 diabetes in adults. FDA initially approved the Canagliflozin drug of the SGLT2 inhibitors class in 2013. It gathered much praise from both physicians and patients as the first new class of medicines that can significantly cure type 2 diabetes. The darker side, however, quickly came into the picture when people became increasingly ill and reported some severe side effects of invokana including renal complications, ketoacidosis, and amputation. Complications of invokana:
Since Invokana is an anti-diabetic drug, the first thing it affects is the kidney. As many as 450 cases of adverse events were found in a study in 2015 which affected the patients in the very first year Invokana was released. Strong enough to warrant attention, some of the severe cases included electrolyte imbalances, urinary tract infections, severe dehydration and kidney stones.
Simply put, Ketoacidosis refers to the presence of high levels of blood acids (ketones) in the bloodstream. It is a serious condition and if left undiagnosed and untreated, it can cause severe dehydration, swelling of the brain, coma and eventually death.
In 2016, FDA released a safety warning that taking Invokana can increase the need for a foot or leg amputation. The next year, it issued another warning stating how the risk of amputation is doubled amongst the diabetic patients who take invokana than the ones who don't. Poor circulation, peripheral arterial disease, and nerve damage are the major reasons why it causes amputations. Invokana lawsuit complaints majorly speak about the fact that patients would have avoided the drug had they known about this risk.
Although it is of rare occurrence, there have been reports of sudden inflammation of the pancreas (which is responsible for producing insulin) owing to the drug's diuretic effects which can cause severe heart problem or even death.
If you or your loved one suffered from any of the above physical experiences after taking Invokana, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Thousands of plaintiffs are seeking compensation to recover costs related to medical bills. Depending on the state laws, invokana settlements not only would need to pay for the medications but also for the post-traumatic stress disorder that reaps from amputation.
