Invokana, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson is a blockbuster drug which has been prescribed to millions of Americans with type 2 diabetes in the last two years. As per Johnson and Johnson Invokana is the much needed breakthrough for the diabetic ketoacidosis patient.

In many cases of ketoacidosis by Invokana, the providers treating the patients weren’t aware that ketoacidosis could be the problem, and that’s the reason the patients didn’t receive the correct treatment at the first place.

Current Status on Invokana claim and lawsuit
As explained above, the connection between Invokana and Kidney dysfunction is obvious provided how the drug functions. Our review on the FDA adverse effect database which tracks injuries reported by doctors reveals that many reports have been filed in past years proving that patients were having variety of Kidney issues, including diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney injury, renal disorder and ketosis. The manufacturers of Invokana should have atleast at minimum updated the warning label on Invokana when it hit the market.
In the end of 2015, the first Invokana lawsuit was filed in Philadelphia against the manufacturers of Invokana, Johnson & Johnson and Janssen Pharmaceuticals. When drug lawsuits are filed, the courts generally consolidate them. This isn’t the same case as happens in class action, where a few plaintiffs and their lawyers control the case. Rather in this case, the cases are all individually filed, but they’re all handled by the same court.
