Are You or a Loved One Victimized by Invokana? Let Us Stand Up for Your Rights.
Invokana, manufactured by Johnson & Johnson, was originally marketed to help patients with type 2 diabetes. Unfortunately, it has become known for its propensity to harm patients rather than for its propensity to help patients. Invokana is part of a class of drugs called SGLT2 inhibitors. Taking this medication has been shown to cause the need for foot or leg amputation in many patients.
At Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP, we are passionate about standing up to drug manufacturers and demanding that they compensate our clients for the pain and injury they have sustained. Since 1922, our firm has fought for the rights of our clients and has recovered millions for them in that time. Put the experience and resources of one of the largest firms in the area to work for you.

Invokana Dangers & Signs of Foot Damage
The FDA has released three safety alerts on the dangers of Invokana and a similar drug, Invokamet. This number is astounding when it is considered that these drugs were only initially approved in 2013 and 2014. The latest information warns that patients who take Invokana are approximately two times as likely to require an amputation as patients on a placebo pill. Diabetics are known to already be at risk for foot and nerve damage; however, it appears that Invokana greatly exacerbates the problem.
If you notice the following, talk to your physician and consider quitting Invokana:
- Tenderness or pain
- Ulcers or sores
- Leg or foot infections
If you have already been greatly harmed by the side effects of Invokana, don’t hesitate to get skilled legal help and begin your journey to just compensation.
