In May of 2015, the FDA warned that Invokana, a drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes, may cause dangerous side effects, such as ketoacidosis. The drug, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, was approved by the FDA in March of 2013, and the drug Invokamet® which includes the same active ingredient, canagliflozin, was approved in 2014. Since the drug was released, the FDA has received approximately 20 reports of patients who had taken Invokana or Invokamet being diagnosed with ketoacidosis.
Ketoacidosis is a serious condition in which the body produces too many acids, or ketones. When ketones build up in the blood, patients can suffer from potentially dangerous side effects, such as stomach pain, vomiting, nausea, muscle aches, fatigue, confusion, or difficulty breathing. If left untreated, ketoacidosis can be fatal. The FDA suggests that any patient who has taken Invokana and is experiencing these symptoms should go immediately to the hospital for treatment.
Some patients who have been diagnosed with ketoacidosis after taking Invokana and similar drugs are seeking legal counsel from Invokana ketoacidosis lawyers.
