WHAT IS INVOKANA?
Invokana, also known as Canagliflozin, is a drug prescribed to those who have Type 2 diabetes to help lower blood sugar. This drug can also help reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke or death for those patients as well. Invokana is manufactured by Janssen Pharmaceuticals, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and approved by the FDA in 2013.
WHAT ARE THE MAJOR INJURIES?
After a few years on the market, this drug has been found to have harmful side effects. Recent studies have shown a link between this drug and amputation of the foot or leg. Users of the drug had started to notice soreness, pain, tenderness and even infections that began to show up in the legs and feet. Since this drug has the ability to prevent blood flow from reaching the feet, this can cause ulcers and infections to form which can then result in amputation.
