The lawsuit against Invokana states the manufacturer failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of the following:
- amputation (Toe, Foot, or Leg)
- kidney failure
- myocardial infarction (heart attacks)
- other cardiovascular issues
The lawsuits states that had the manufacturer properly warned of the risks, patients would have likely been prescribed a different medication for their diabetes, and certainly would have had their health more closely and regularly monitored for potential signs of heart issues, renal impairment, and high level of ketones. It is the duty of drug manufacturers to provide prescription drugs that are safe for their intended uses. If that obligation is not fulfilled, or if a drug maker fails to adequately warn the patients of potential dangers that may be associated with a medication, the manufacturer can be held liable for the injuries that may occur.
