New Amputation Safety Warning Label for Diabetes Drug Invokana
I’m Ed Smith, a Sacramento personal injury lawyer. Every week, my office provides clients with news updates concerning topics related to personal injuries. Some of these articles target specific medicines like the diabetes drug Invokana that has caused so many patients to suffer negative side effects. It’s now believed that Invokana (canagliflozin) can increase patients’ chances of one day requiring a foot or leg amputation.
Other reported side effects include urinary tract problems and ketoacidosis – this latter condition can become life-threatening and require hospitalization. Jenssen Pharmaceuticals, Invokana’s manufacturer, also warns patients that this drug can increase their chances of suffering bone fractures and various allergic reactions.
