Our law firm has started investigating claims on behalf of all persons who have been injured from serious side effects while taking Invokana.
The FDA has recently administered warnings about the use of SGLT2 inhibitors, including Invokana. They are increasing users’ risk of kidney injury, diabetic ketoacidosis, heart attack, stroke, and amputation of the limbs. If you or a loved one has undergone any of these conditions, you should be speaking to an experienced legal representative to receive compensation from the Invokana company.
Invokana Lawsuit: Do You Have A Case Against The Makers Of This Drug?
There are currently many lawsuits pending against the makers of the Invokana medication, Janssen and Johnson & Johnson. These individuals are stating that the makers knew about the potential side effects of this drug and refused to release the information to the public.
Those bringing suit against the companies state that if they had known of the side effects of the drug they would not have taken it. They would have opted for a different medication.
To be eligible for a lawsuit, you or your loved one must have been injured or killed as a result of taking the drug Invokana for treating type 2 diabetes. Those injured or their surviving loved ones are eligible for compensation that covers the cost of medical treatment, pain and suffering, as well as lost wages.
As the warning from the FDA is becoming more widely seen, more and more individuals are stepping forward with lawsuits. It does take some time for individuals to connect their medical problems to the use of the medication Invokana. It’s expected that more cases will be initiated in the future.
Invokana Side Effects
There are numerous side effects that have been linked to the use of Invokana. These can be mild or severe instances. These side effects include the following:
- Urinary Tract Infection
- Cardiovascular Problems (Stroke, Heart Attack)
- Amputation (Toes, Feet, Legs)
- Kidney Injury / Failure
- Diabetic Ketoacidosis
Diabetics are at a higher risk for developing vascular-related conditions. When there is a lack of oxygen and nutrients in the body’s extremities, including arms, legs, fingers, and toes, the cells will start to die off. When this happens it can lead to amputation of the affected extremities.
It’s thought that Invokana triggers a negative effect on the vascular system. This makes the diabetic patients, who are more susceptible to vascular conditions, develop vascular issues resulting in the side effects that are mentioned above.
