Invokana Lawsuits

Many patients who have been wrongfully harm by Invokana have spoken with our attorneys about making a claim against Janssen Pharmaceutica. Settlements in these potential cases are expected to be substantial.

There is already a national Invokana lawsuit, which 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.

You may be entitled to receive compensation for your suffering if you were harmed by the type 2 diabetes drug Invokana.

What are the Criteria for Filing an Invokana Lawsuit?

Approved in March 2013, Invokana (canagliflozin) is an SGLT2 Inhibitor used to treat adults with Type 2 diabetes, manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson.

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.
