The current Invokana (also marketed as Invokamet) lawsuit alleges that the makers failed to warn both physicians and patients of the risks involved with taking their products. The current lawsuit submits that had the manufacturers provided proper warning of the risks, patients could have opted for a substitute diabetes medication or more closely monitored certain health issues while taking Invokana.
What Is Invokana?
Invokana (Invokamet) is part of a class of drugs known as SGLT2 inhibitors. They are used in combination with dietary and exercise regimens to help lower blood glucose levels and improve glycemic control in adults who have type 2 diabetes.
Major manufacturers of SGLT2 inhibitors include Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Boehringer Ingelheim, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson.
