What is Invokana?

Invokana, which contains the active ingredient canagliflozin, is in a class of drugs called sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors. SGLT2 inhibitors includes other drugs such as Farxiga and Glyxambi that are used to help regulate blood sugar levels in adult patients with type 2 diabetes.

This class of drugs, however, is not approved to treat type 1 diabetes patients. Along with other members of the SGLT2 inhibitor class, Invokana works by triggering the kidneys to take sugar from the body through the urine to lower blood sugar levels.

Invokana Risks

In June 2016, the FDA issued a safety communication strengthening an existing warning regarding the risks of acute kidney injury related to the use of certain type 2 diabetes medications, including Invokana. According to the report, the FDA received reports of 101 confirmable cases of acute kidney injury, as reported to FAERS from March 2013 to October 2015. Some cases reported incidences of hospitalization.
