Invokana Settlement Update

Invokana is a sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitor for Type 2 Diabetics manufactured by Janssen. The Invokana class action has settled. The Settlement provides for the payment of $1,500,000 which will be used to pay approved claims. The claims period has now passed, as of August 14, 2023 and no further claims are being accepted. We are presently waiting for settlement funds to be paid to our clients who successfully claimed.

Jardiance is a similar drug manufactured by Boehringer. The claim as related to Jardiance has been abandoned by the class action lawyers as there were not enough users in Canada. We are not accepting any new cases and no further claims related to this drug may be made.

Invokana Diabetes Drug Lawsuit

Invokana was released on the market in the USA in 2013 and in Canada in May 2014. This drug belongs to a new class of medications called sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors that increase the body’s release of sugars in the urine. Invokana has been hailed as a great option for treating type 2 diabetes but beware. Similar drugs are Farxiga from Astra Zeneca and Jardiance made by Eli Lily.
