Invokana Questions and Answers

 

What is Invokana?

Invokana® is a drug.  (Legally, it’s the brand name of the generic drug canagliflozin.)

 

What is Invokana supposed to do?

It is supposed to help people with Type II diabetes.

 

How is it supposed to do that?

It works by suppressing sugar from re-entering the blood stream.

 

So what’s wrong with that?

The problem is that by suppressing the sugars from re-entering the blood stream, it forces the sugar elsewhere—directly to the kidneys.

 

What happens to the kidneys then?

When Invokana forces the sugar to the kidneys, the kidneys often shut down.  They’re simply overloaded with sugar.

 

What kind of symptoms should I be on the look-out for?

Almost any kind of kidney problem.

 

What kinds of kidney-related problems are you talking about?

Invokana has been linked to diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney failure, cardiac disorders, and even fatal comas.

 

Any other kind of problem?

Yes.  Invokana has also been linked to pancreatic problems, like pancreatitis.

 

Is that why there are lawsuits against Invokana?

Exactly.

 

So if I bring a suit, do I have to sue my doctor?

Absolutely not.

 

Why not?

Because your doctor (like the vast majority of doctors) very likely did NOT know about these horrible side-effects until much later.

 

So who should come in to talk about their Invokana problem?

Anyone who (a) took Invokana and (b) suffered some kind of kidney-related problem.

 

What if I took the generic drug instead?

We are not able to take on cases for people who only took canagliflozin.

 

What do I need to pursue my claim?

Eventually, we’ll work with you on obtaining medical and/or diagnosis records—but you do NOT need that information to start the process.

 

How long will my case take?

These kinds of cases are highly complex and can easily take months to work through, or years to get to trial.
