Invokana Lawsuits

Invokana diabetes drug linked to amputations, ketoacidosis

RPWB is accepting the cases of people who took the diabetes drug Invokana and developed ketoacidosis or had to have their feet or legs amputated.

In May, the FDA issued a warning that Invokana® can cause patients to develop ketoacidosis, a serious condition in which the body produces too many acids called ketones. Thus far, the FDA has received more than 20 reports Invokana patients developing ketoacidosis. In extreme cases, it can lead to death.

The FDA also recently reported that initial results from a clinical study indicate Invokana led to an increase in leg and foot amputations. Regulators have stated that they are taking a closer look at the drugs and may consider changing some of Invokana’s prescription information.

Invokana is a popular SGLT2 Inhibitor, which helps regulate blood sugar by causing the body to release sugar in the patient’s urine. The manufacturer, Johnson & Johnson, has spent a lot of money marketing the drug to physicians. According to a ProPublicainvestigation, the drug-maker spent more than $7 million on hosting events for physicians and hospitals during just a five-month period at the end of 2013.
