Invokana is a popular drug that is used to treat Type II diabetes by lowering blood sugar. It is manufactured by Johnson & Johnson.
Many people are prescribed Invokana to help regulate their blood sugar. But there are several known health risks associated with this drug. For many people, Invokana use can cause more harm than good.
The Problem With Invokana
In May of 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning on the dangers of Invokana use.
Invokana is in a class of drugs called sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. The FDA found an increased risk of developing ketoacidosis and other conditions among users of Invokana.
Health Risks Associated With Invokana Use
Use of Invokana has been shown to increase an individual’s risk of:
- Heart attack
- Kidney failure
- Bone fractures
- Urinary tract infection (UTI)
- Blood infections
- Kidney infections
- Other infections
Invokana And Ketoacidosis
Invokana use has been shown to cause high levels of acid in the blood, a condition known as ketoacidosis. Some common symptoms of ketoacidosis include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, breathing problems, fatigue, and excessive or frequent urination.
The negative effects of this drug can come on surprisingly fast.
If you have noticed any signs of ketoacidosis (or any of the symptoms listed above), and you have taken Invokana, you should immediately talk to your doctor and seek treatment. These are potentially life-threatening side effects.
