Invokana Amputation side effects. Johnson & Johnson and it’s Janssen subsidiary are under fire that the companies failed to adequately research the potential side effects of Invokana.

Whitney Bridgford, from Kentucky, recently filed product liability lawsuit claiming that catastrophic complications from Invokana lead to several amputations and heart attacks.

According to Bridgford, the diabetic drug manufacturers were derelict in their duty when they failed to adequately warn about the side effect risks linked to their blockbuster new diabetes drug.

Bridgford filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey claiming that her severe permanent injuries could have been avoided if proper warnings had been provided for patients and doctors about the increased risk of Invokana causing diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney failure, and lower limb amputations.

Invokana lawsuits over 1,000

The Invokana side effect injury cases are concentrated in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, and more than 1,000 have been filed for centralization and coordination for pretrial proceedings, as part of a federal multidistrict litigation (MDL).

The Invokana side effect cases involve three different injury categories, kidney failure, diabetic ketoacidosis, and allegations that Invokana increases the risk of amputations.

What is Invokana?

Invokana (canagliflozin) was approved for sale in March 2013, as the first member of a new class of diabetes drugs, known as sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors.

Similar SGLT2 drugs include Invokamet, Jardiance, Farxiga, Xigduo, and Invokana has the largest market share.

FDA Warnings over Invokana Side Effects

Since Invokana’s release, there have been many reports of catastrophic health complications from patients taking the type 2 diabetic medication. The FDA has ordered many warning label updates over the past several years.

In December 2015, the FDA ordered Johnson & Johnson to add new diabetic ketoacidosis warnings to Invokana, finding that the drug increases the risk of this dangerous medical condition.

In June 2016, the FDA ordered new label warnings about Invokana and kidney risks, finding that the drug increases the risk of acute kidney failure.

In May 2017, the FDA ordered new label warnings about Invokana and the increased risk of leg and foot amputations.
