Invokana is a type 2 diabetes drug produced and distributed by Janssen Pharmaceutica, a drug company located in Beerse, Belgium. Recently, the medication has been under heavy scrutiny for being linked to serious and life-threatening complications in some patients. One of the most serious complications that has been associated with Invokana is ketoacidosis, a condition that can occur in diabetic patients due to a rise of ketones in the blood stream. Ketones are produced when the body breaks down fat cells for energy instead of glucose (sugar). An excess amount of ketones in the body can be toxic, and can cause other serious problems such as diabetic coma, kidney failure, cardiovascular complications, and blood clots.
If you or a loved one has recently taken Invokana to control type 2 diabetes, and have experienced adverse side-effects as a result, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against the drug manufacturer. Several lawsuits are already being filed against Janssen for failing to produce a safe and reliable medication. Our skilled legal team and speak with you about your situation and advise you if you are eligible to file an individual lawsuit or join an already existing class action lawsuit. Settlements amounts in these cases are expected to be substantial.
Symptoms of Ketoacidosis
If you are using Invokana, it is important to be on the look out for potential warning signs of ketoacidosis. Here is a list of some of the more common symptoms:
- Thirst or an unusually dry mouth
- Difficulty breathing, including deep or rapid breathing
- High blood glucose levels
- Decreased alertness or hard time focusing
- Deep, rapid breathing
- Frequent urination
- Fruity-smelling breath

If you experiencing any of these symptoms, you should seek medical attention immediately. Ketoacidosis is usually treated at the hospital, and if it is caught in time, does not pose a life threatening risk.
