This latest FDA warning about the safety issues associated with these diabetes medicines follows
an FDA announcement back in May 2015 about possible need for new drug side effects
warnings. We reported about that development in this earlier article, “May 2015 Diabetes Drugs –
Ketoacidosis Link Warning By FDA Covers Invokana, Farxiga, And Jardiance, With Label
Changes Possible”.
Just a couple of months ago, in October 2015, Health Canada issued this advisory, “Summary
Safety Review – Sodium Glucose Cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) Inhibitors INVOKANA (canagliflozin)
and FORXIGA (dapagliflozin) – Evaluation of a Potential Risk of Acute Kidney Injury”.
Therein, Health Canada pointed out that serious kidney or renal problems might be caused by
Invokana and Farxiga (known as Forxiga in Canada). While it is not yet confirmed, all of the
diabetes drugs in this class, such as Glyxambi, Synjardy, Invokamet, and Xigduo XR, may also
be associated with kidney problems.
We are investigating cases of ketoacidosis, kidney damage / renal failure, and other serious side
effects of Invokana, Farxiga, Jardiance, and these other newer medications for diabetes as
possible drug injury lawsuits against the responsible pharmaceutical companies.
