Invokana Wrongful Death Lawsuits
The diabetes drug Invokana has been linked several serious medical conditions. Complications of this medication include ketoacidosis, kidney, failure, heart attacks, and comas. When untreated, these side-effects can lead to death from use of Invokana.
The FDA issued a statement in May 2015 advising health professionals and consumers of the potential serious complications of this type 2 diabetes drug. Several dangerous drug lawsuits will be filed against the pharmaceutical for the harm caused by this medication. In cases involving death, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
What are the Criteria for Filing an Invokana Lawsuit?
SGLT2 inhibitors work by preventing high blood sugar by helping the patient’s kidneys remove excess sugar through their urine.
In May 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning the drug has been linked to cases of ketoacidosis, a serious condition where there is too much acid in the blood.
Complications of diabetic ketoacidosis include difficulty breathing, nausea/vomiting, abdominal pain, confusion and unusual fatigue or sleepiness. The condition can lead to diabetic coma and/or death.
The national Invokana lawsuit alleges that the manufacturers and marketers of SGLT2 Inhibitors failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of kidney failure, myocardial infarction (heart attacks), other cardiovascular issues, and ketoacidosis.
The lawsuit states that if the manufacturers and marketers had properly warned of the risks, patients would have been prescribed and taken a substitute medication for their diabetes and would have had their health monitored on a more routine basis for potential signs of heart issues, renal impairment, and high level of ketones.
