Did You Suffer Kidney Failure or Ketoacidosis After Invokana?
If you took Invokana and experienced complications such as kidney failure or ketoacidosis, you may wish to explore your legal options.
The type 2 diabetes prescription, Invokana, has been implicated in a number of side effects that can result in patient complications, hospitalization, and even death. One of the painful and dangerous conditions caused by Invokana is ketoacidosis – an over production of acids and underproduction of insulin in the blood. This condition can cause diabetic comas which can result in death.
Kidney failure is another damaging side effect of Invokana use. When a patient’s kidneys fail, waste and other fluids build up in the body and causes weakness, shortness of breath, lethargy and confusion.
Do not ignore the signs. If you are currently taking Invokana and experience any difficulty breathing, hyperventilation, or unusual fatigue, seek immediate medical attention. If you or a loved one was diagnosed with kidney failure or ketoacidosis while taking Invokana, you may wish to explore your legal options by calling 1-800-LAW-FIRM. You may be entitled to a cash settlement for the damage to your health caused by this dangerous drug.
In 2013, when Invokana was first approved by the FDA, over 450 patients reported toxic and harmful side effects from the medication. Most of those reports included kidney failure, severe dehydration and urinary tract infections. The FDA has already sounded the alarm on Invokana, warning that its dangerous side effects, including ketoacidosis, can be life threatening if left untreated. The FDA is now questioning whether the benefits of Invokana outweigh its potential risks.
