Lowers my blood/sugar all day. I've cut back on my glipizide and Lantus. Some nights I don't use the lantus at all. I've been taking it for eight weeks and I've lost 6lbs!. My A1C is also dropping. Very satisfied with this drug. I do urinate more often but that's fine with me. I drink 4, 16oz bottles of water a day too.

Yeast infection for 3 months! Not worth the misery. Worst infection I've ever had. Monistat and Diflucan tablets the entire time. My Dr. says it's doing its job by releasing sugar through my urine, just can't stand the discomfort any longer.

Had serious doubts because its so new but I have not had anything adverse to speak of...In the beginning I felt slightly lightheaded but remembered that Invoksna can cause dehydration and dehydration can cause light hesdedness...so I drank more water and the dizziness stopped!...I'm fine with it.

Comment:
Developed sever nausea and vomiting after 3 days after taking 100 mg. daily. Extremely lightheaded, and slightly unstable on my feet. ALWAYS in the bathroom urinating, that was crazy. I was using samples and I am glad I did because my insurance would not cover the this medication. I stopped the medication!

Comment:
I have been on Invokana for over a year. With great numbers,A1C dropped from 13 to 6 within a few months. Also dropped 20lbs. No side affects. My advice for the yeast infections is to cut out everything else that has yeast in it. Such as bread, rolls, beer, anything with yeast. It's worked for me. Also zero calorie Powerade or Gatorade helps if you get dehydrated. Cut out the yeast, drink lots ... Show Full Comment
