Are There Side Effects When Using Invoka? Is There A Risk Of Injury?
In 2013, the FDA approved Invokana (canagliflozin) to treat adults with Type 2 diabetes. This SGLT2 inhibitor— manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson—prevents high blood sugar by helping patients’ kidneys remove excess sugar through their urine.

In 2015, the FDA issued a warning linking the drug to cases of ketoacidosis—a serious and dramatic increase of acid in the blood. Complications of diabetic ketoacidosis include:
- Difficulty breathing
- Nausea or vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- Unusual fatigue
- Excessive sleepiness
Left untreated, diabetic ketoacidosis—a very dangerous condition the FDA has linked to the use of Invokana – can lead to diabetic coma or even death. It is very important to seek medical attention if you notice any of the above symptoms in you or your loved one.
