Concerns and Dangers with Invokana
The prescription drug Invokana, taken by those that suffer from type 2 diabetes, has received warnings by the FDA for possible increased risks of kidney failure, heart attacks, numerous cardiovascular issues and ketoacidosis. Some complications with diabetic ketoacidosis are low potassium, swelling in the brain, and low blood sugar. If left untreated, this condition is considered fatal.
The plaintiffs in current Invokana lawsuits allege that the maker of the drug Jannsen, a Johnson & Johnson company, failed to notify physicians and patients of the increased risks of kidney failure, ketoacidosis, and myocardial infraction.
Purpose of the Prescription Drug Invokana
