Invokana  Class Action Lawyers

Our Invokana lawyers are filing Invokana lawsuits for kidney damage,heart attacks, and ketoacidosis  complications from the medication Invokana. Lawsuits are being filed because the manufacturers and  of SGLT2 inhibitors (such as Johnson & Johnson, Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc., AstraZeneca & Boehringer Ingelheim) failed to warn patients and physicians of the  risks of kidney failure, myocardial infarction and ketoacidosis.

What is  Invokana?

You may have been prescribed Invokana to improve glycemic control and lower blood sugar if you are a  type 2 diabetic.  These medications lower a person’s blood sugar by causing the kidneys to remove it through the urine.

Heart Attack  Ketoacidosis  Drugs

Invokana, (Invokamet), Canagliflozin, Invokamet, Canagliflozin and Metformin, Farxiga, Dapagliflozin, Xigduo XR, Dapagliflozin and Metformin extended-release, Jardiance, Empagliflozin, Glyxambi, Empagliflozin and Linagliptin.

Risks Alert For Kidney Failure

Kidney failure occurs when your kidneys stop functioning.  When your kidneys stop properly functioning,  you will experience cause weakness, shortness of breath, lethargy, confusion, abnormal heart rhythms and even sudden death.

Risk Alert For Heart Attacks

A heart attack results in the  death of cells within the heart. This is  caused by a restriction of blood. It occurs when there is a blockage in the arteries preventing blood from reaching portions the heart.

Risk Alert For Ketoacidosis

Ketoacidosis is high levels of ketones.  Ketoacidosis can result in a patient suffering a diabetic coma, extended hospitalization and even death. The  FDA warns that SGLT2 inhibitors for diabetes may result in a serious condition of too much acid in the blood. Medications in the class include AstraZeneca’s Farxiga and Xigduo, Jardiance and Glyxambi from Lilly and Boehringer Ingelheim. J&J also combines the active ingredient in Invokana with metformin and markets it as Invokamet.
