Invokana Injury Lawsuit
Our Attorneys Stand Up For Patients’ Rights
Hundreds of thousands of Americans take the drug Invokana (canagliflozin), which is used to treat Type 2 diabetes. Since reaching the market in 2013, Invokana has become one of the most popular diabetes medications nationwide. However, since its inception, Invokana has been associated with several serious side effects – and this dangerous drug has been marketed and sold in spite of these significant health risks.
Serious concerns have plagued Invokana since its inception
When Invokana was first approved in 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required its manufacturer, Janssen Pharmaceuticals (a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson), to conduct double-blind prospective placebo studies in order to evaluate the medication’s risks. Such studies are the “gold standard” in the pharmaceutical industry and are rarely required due to the associated costs and risks. However, concerns about Invokana’s suspected link to cardiac problems were serious enough to require these studies.
