Wisconsin Invokana Lawyers

Many adults struggle every day with living with the complications that come with having type II diabetes. More and more diabetes medication is approved to be sold to patients just like you. However, even if they are put through the right testing process, Big Pharma and the FDA may not realize that full side effects until it’s too late.

Ivokana was one such medicine. Rather than directly treat diabetes, Invokana was meant to be used to reduce the patient’s blood sugar levels. By keeping blood sugar levels stabilized, Invokana was supposed to prevent severe diabetes complications, such as:

  • Kidney Damage
  • Loss of Sight or Permanent Blindness
  • Nerve Damage
  • Amputation/Loss of Limbs
  • Impotence/Sexual Function Issues
  • Heart Attack
  • Stroke

While these are certainly problems that should be prevented with the right medication, the manufacturers of Invokana allegedly knew that the drug was going to cause other severe side effects. These are side effects such as:

  • Ketoacidosis
  • Kidney Failure
  • Heart Attacks

That’s right; even though the drug was supposed to help your kidneys and prevent heart attacks, it may actually have put you at a higher risk for them.

Ketoacidosis is no joke either; your body produces more acidic blood, making your body stay thirsty and dehydrated, nausea, frequent urination, abdominal pain, loss of strength, and even confusion. Ketoacidosis is caused when the body doesn’t have enough insulin produced in the body, making a pill that removes sugar from a diabetes patient the prime suspect.

If found guilty, this will only solidify another instance where a large pharmaceutical manufacturer put earning profits ahead of the health and safety of patients. If they knowingly subjected you, and others, to these increased risks, then they need to face their victims, and justice needs to be served.

If you or someone you know was prescribed Invokana, they may be eligible for damages. To know for sure, you need the best injury lawyers in Wisconsin by your side, fighting for you.
