In March 2013, a medication called Invokana® was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help control blood glucose levels in patients suffering from type 2 diabetes. Since then, information has surfaced that shows using Invokana can cause a person to develop ketoacidosis, a condition in which acid levels in the blood can accumulate and become toxic.
Despite being made aware of the link between Invokana and ketoacidosis, the makers of Invokana continued to market the drug and hid information regarding the dangers of the drug from the public.
The FDA eventually issued a safety alert regarding the use of Invokana, which in turn prompted many who had been injured by the drug to seek compensation for their losses through civil litigation.
The Birmingham drug injury lawyers at Cory Watson Attorneys are currently filing Invokana lawsuits on behalf of a number of individuals who were harmed by the medication and are examining other potential cases of harm caused by Invokana nationwide.
