Q: Which SGLT2 inhibitors are currently under investigation?

Q: What are dangers in taking Invokana?

A: The most serious potential side effects of taking Invokana include:

  • Ketoacidosis: When the body cannot produce enough insulin, it will start to break down fat instead of sugar, resulting in a buildup of toxic acids called ketones. Patients have been known to suffer diabetic comas if their ketone levels are too high. Excessive ketone levels will lead to ketoacidosis.
  • Kidney failure: Kidneys help filter waste products from the blood. They regulate blood pressure, red blood cell production, and electrolyte balance. When kidneys stop working, waste products, fluids and electrolytes build up. This results in lethargy, confusion, heart rhythm abnormalities, and even sudden death.
  • Myocardial infarction: When the blood is restricted, it can result in the irreversible death of cells in the heart. A heart attack can happen when a blockage in the arteries prevents blood from reaching every section of the heart. When parts of the heart don’t receive enough oxygen or nutrients, the starved heart tissue will die. This is a common cause of heart attacks.

Q: What should I do if I’m taking Invokana?

A: It is important to discuss the side effects of Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors with your doctor. It is particularly necessary to keep an eye on early signs of kidney failure, heart issues, and acidosis.

If you experience any side effects such as chest pain, increased heart rate, weakness, nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue or hyperventilation, see a doctor right away. Drug manufacturers are legally required to warn consumers about any potential side effects.
