Following the release of a U.S. Food and Drug Administration Safety Communication regarding potentially dangerous side effects of Invokana and other SGLT2 inhibitors, patients may be wondering whether an Invokana class action lawsuit has been filed. Invokana lawsuit attorneys note that SGLT2 inhibitors, which are used to help regulate blood sugar levels in adult patients with type 2 diabetes, have been linked to complications including dangerously high blood acid levels, and kidney and cardiovascular complications.

Has an Invokana Class Action Been Filed?
As of December 2016, an Invokana class action lawsuit has not been filed, and it is not believed that one will be certified for patients who claim they have been harmed by Invokana or other SGLT2 inhibitors. However, if multiple claims are brought alleging injuries caused by Invokana and other drugs of its class, Invokana attorneys anticipate that the lawsuits will be consolidated into a multidistrict litigation, or MDL, for discovery and other pretrial proceedings.
Multidistrict litigation is distinct from a class action, and is established when multiple lawsuits are filed against a single entity, and when the injuries to each individual plaintiff are unique. Generally, consolidating cases instead of proceeding in a class action is a more effective way of handling claims that allege injuries from pharmaceutical products.
How an Invokana Lawsuit Can Help
Drug makers have a duty to provide safe products. If there are risks of harm associated with their products, they also must provide adequate warnings. If a drug maker fails to fulfill this duty, it could be held liable in lawsuits for injuries that may result.
People injured by bad drugs may be eligible to recover money for:
