An Invokana lawsuit was filed by a man from Illinois alleging that the side effects of this antidiabetic drug resulted in the amputation of his big toe, thereby holding the manufacturers responsible for failing to adequately warn the users and medical community about the risk.
Another Invokana lawsuit was filed by a man from Florida who had to amputate his second right toe due to ongoing ulceration and osteomyelitis, leaving him permanently disfigured. This was less than a year after he was first prescribed Invokana for treatment of type 2 diabetes. This case too shall soon join the Invokana lawsuits pending in the New Jersey federal court.
