Invokana, Farxiga & Jardiance Lawsuits
Houston Pharmaceutical Litigation Attorney Serving Clients Nationwide
In May of 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warned consumers,
doctors, and pharmacists of the dangers of Invokana, Farxiga and Jardiance,
prescription medications used to treat or otherwise address high blood
sugar levels related to type 2 diabetes. The FDA determined that SGLT2
inhibitor medications Invokana, Farxiga and Jardiance could cause ketoacidosis,
or dangerously high levels of acid in the blood. In September of 2015,
the FDA released another warning that these drugs could decrease bone
density in certain patients, putting them at serious risk of bone fractures.
Despite the warning from the FDA, Invokana, Farxiga and Jardiance are still
produced, advertised, and sold to pharmacies. There were inadequate warnings
on labels and in advertisements between using these drugs and resulting
injuries. Patients and consumers were therefore subjected to undue harm
and illness that would likely have been prevented had they known the dangers
of Invokana, Farxuga and Jardiance, described below.
If you have taken Invokana, Farxiga or Jardiance, call The Webster Law
Firm at (713) 396-5197 right away. You may be entitled to financial
compensation for your injuries and damages.
Side Effects and Consequences of Using Invokana, Farxiga, and Jardiance
Invokana, Farxiga, Jaridance, and similar prescription medications primarily
rely on canagliflozin, dapaglifloxin and empaglifloxin. While there is
evidence that these compounds can benefit people with type 2 diabetes,
there is just as much evidence that it can cause harm instead.
Some of the most common side effects of these drugs are:
- Heart attack or cardiac arrest
- Kidney Failure
- Bone fractures or weakness
Symptoms of ketoacidosis include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Stomach pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Brain swelling
Reminder - If you are currently taking Invokana, Farxiga and Jaridance, you should
not stop taking your medication without first talking to your doctor.
Only a professional medical practitioner can decide if changing your medication
regimen is safe for you.
