Invokana Class Action

Johnson & Johnson introduced Invokana (canagliflozin) in 2013. Since Invokana was released, it has been extremely popular for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Although J&J did not publicly disclose the revenue generated by Invokana, it has been estimated that in their first year on the market they generated more than $100 million in sales.

Despite it’s popularity, many users claim that Johnson & Johnson withheld information regarding serious side effects. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says it has received over 457 adverse events for Invokana within the first year the drug was available.

The most common issues with Invokana include:

  • Kidney Failure
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke
  • Diabetic Ketoacidosis
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Weight Loss
  • Kidney failure
  • Kidney stones
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Hypersensitivity, and in some cases
  • Death

FDA Issued Warning Regarding Diabetic Ketoacidosis.

In May 2015, the FDA issued a warning regarding the use of Invokana and the serious risks associated with the drug. One of the serious side effects is known as diabetic ketoacidosis. Diabetic ketoacidosis occurs when a high level of blood acids, ketones, are produced in the body when the body can’t produce enough insulin. This condition can very well lead to a diabetic coma or brain swelling. The FDA Invokana warning pertained to how the medication may cause patients to experience high levels of acid to accumulate in the blood and lead to diabetic ketoacidosis.

At this time there has not been a voluntary or involuntary recall of Invokana related to the serious side effects. The FDA has issued a safety announcement to bring awareness to ketoacidosis and to let patients know they should pay close attention to any symptoms leading up to this condition.

The FDA urged patients to seek immediate medical attention if they experience:

  • Confusion,
  • Fatigue/Sleepiness
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Nausea/Vomiting
  • Abdominal Pain

What Our Clients Say

They truly care
Mrs Vallery, who answered the phone took more care and attention to detail than any other law office, that I have called, in 2 years+. She diligently took notes to give to the lawyers and cared about my situation and let me actually tell everything without cutting me short. Out of over 100 law offices, this is rare treatment. Care. Consideration. That means more than anything going through this…
Professional Representation, Satisfying Legal Outcome!
My wife and I retained Bakari Sellers to represent our son in a case in Richland County. We found Mr. Sellers, his assistant Stephanie, and the rest of the staff at Strom, extremely courteous and professional. We really appreciated Mr. Sellers’ straightforward and honest approach. We believe this is a very competent law firm, and are satisfied with the legal outcome they achieved. We would highly recommend them!

From Self-Representation to Victory in SSDI Case!
My experience with Mario and his staff was outstanding. When everyone said to give up my case with SSDI and after being poorly represented and losing. I had to file my own appeals and represent myself. I literally called every attorney in the book. Then I called Mario cold – I expected one more no! Well, this gentleman took my case and won. He knows the law and cares a lot. I am proud to call him my friend. If you need a professional to help you, call these guys.

A Lifesaver in the Courtroom, Ensuring Freedom with A1 Professionalism
Needed a lifesaver. I had gotten myself into a bad situation and the possibility of going to prison. Through the diligence and hard work done by attorney Alley B., I was able to walk out of that courtroom a free man. No tricks just hard down attorney work. She was an A1 professional and knew every inch of the Law pertaining to my case. For that, I am forever grateful.

John Alphin was great. We basically worked together for 22 months. Bakari Sellers was also on the team and together those 2 guys were fabulous. Won the case and I’m still a client of Strom law firm. Thank you and awesome law firm.
