Report: Warning Label Enhanced As Study Suggests Invokana Linked To Bone Density Loss

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is urging patients using the diabetes drug Invokana and the medical professionals who prescribe it to report associated side effects now that another round of clinical trials has revealed concerning new information. PMLive reports that the new data represents a major setback for the popular SGLT2 inhibitor, and that the FDA is strengthening its warnings about the drug in response to the findings.

A clinical study involving 713 elderly patients indicated that Invokana was more likely than a placebo to cause reductions in bone mineral density along a patient’s lower spine and through the hips. The trial also revealed that fractures related to the drug could occur as soon as three months after a patient begins taking it. The link between these problems and a patient’s use of Invokana was strong enough for the FDA to enhance its warnings about the bone fracture risk, which may decrease the drug’s competitiveness within the U.S. marketplace, the website reported.

How a Michigan Invokana Lawyer Can Help

Patients who are injured by Invokana may be entitled to compensation for damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
