The FDA is warning diabetic patients that the drugs Invokana and Invokamet and/or other Type 2 Diabetes medicines may be linked to increased risks of kidney failure, amputations, pancreatitis, kidney damage, possible bladder cancer, heart attacks or diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Invokana is a diabetes drug used to help control Type 2 diabetes. No Invokana recall or Invokamet recall has been announced or discussed by the FDA at this time.
On May 18, 2016, the FDA announced new fuinding concerning an increased risk of Invokana and amputations. In particular the use of Invokana by diabetes and foot amputations, toe and leg amputations. FDA is alerting the public about interim safety results from an ongoing clinical trial that found an increase in leg and foot amputations, mostly affecting the toes, in patients treated with the diabetes medicine canagliflozin (Invokana, Invokamet). FDA noted that has not determined whether canagliflozin increases the risk of leg and foot amputations. Decreased blood supply to the lower legs, feet and toes may be culprit. FDA is currently investigating this new safety issue regarding amputations and Invokana and will update the public when more is known.
