Invokana Amputation Lawsuits
Based upon new data from two large clinical trials, the FDA in May 2017 concluded that the type 2 diabetes medicines Invokana, Invokamet, Invokamet XR caused an increased risk of leg and foot amputations. [See FDA Drug Safety Communication here.]
The FDA is requiring new warnings, including their most prominent Black Boxed Warning, to be added to the Invokana drug labels to describe this risk.
As patients become aware of the amputee side effects, injured patients are filing product liability lawsuits that claim that Invokana directly caused the amputation of their leg, foot or toes.
If you or someone you know took Invokana and suffered an amputation to the leg, foot or toes you may be entitled to compensation.
