What are the most serious Invokana side effects?
According to adverse event reports and the FDA Invokana warning, ketoacidosis, or blood acid problems, is a leading side effect of the drug. Reports of kidney failure, kidney impairment, heart attack, and stroke round out the list of severe Invokana injuries.
Who is at risk for Invokana kidney failure, ketoacidosis, or cardiovascular problems?
Anyone who takes Invokana is at risk for these side effects. The risk of heart attack and stroke is thought to peak in the first 30 days of taking the drug. Kidney problems may be more likely in patients who are fasting. However, these medical conditions are still under investigation. The FDA Invokana warning was issued in 2015, yet no changes have yet been made to the drug’s label to reflect these risks.
Do Invokana’s benefits outweigh the drug’s risks?
Many physicians are saying no, they do not believe the benefits outweigh Invokana side effects. Doctors say the drug is only marginally effective at regulating blood glucose levels, and its mean to do so – excreting glucose through the urine – causes other serious health problems. Many experts say that older, less expensive generic drugs are more effective and safer.
How long have the risks of Invokana injuries and wrongful death been known?
Experts say Janssen knew or suspected Invokana’s side effects when the drug was approved by the FDA in 2013. Yet the drug promised to be hugely profitable, with annual sales projected to reach $468 million by 2016. Information regarding Invokana health risks and research has come from the FDA, based on post-market adverse event reporting – not the drug company. In essence, the only reason we know about these dangers is that innocent consumers have suffered from them.
Aren't most drug and products liability lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
The majority of our drug cases are handled as a MDL, or Multi-District Litigation, where each plaintiff receives a settlement based upon the individual injuries and damages incurred by each plaintiff.
We're not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
How much time do I have to file an Invokana lawsuit for kidney problems, ketoacidosis, heart attack, stroke, or other Invokana side effects?
Most states have Invokana injury lawsuit time limits; however, the majority of all persons having used Invokana will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you as quickly as possible, usually within the hour.
