FDA Claims Invokana Patients at Risk of Bone Fractures

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning users of the diabetes drug Invokana that they may be at an increased risk of suffering adverse reactions. Specifically, the FDA is informing users of canagliflozin, a type 2 diabetes medication marketed under the name Invokana, that it may reduce bone mineral density along the lower spine and at the hip. Invokana patients may also suffer bone fractures as soon as four months after they start taking the drug. Those involved with the FDA’s MedWatch program are asking patients to report these and other side effects in an effort to obtain additional information about the drug’s link to fractured bones.

While the FDA plans to continue to compile research about Invokana’s link to bone problems, several modifications and enhancements have been made to the drug’s label in the interim. The “adverse reactions” section now contains updated information related to these risks, and additional information about related precautions has also been added.

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

  • Medical expenses
