Comment:
Was on Metformin 1000mg, amaryl 4 mg, placed on Invokana due to increase of AIC from 6.8-7.4.(Kept on metformin and amaryl) Did fine for 3 months, lost approx 10 pounds,AIC dropped to 6.4, then the burning, itching, chafing, and yeast began. I Have been using Monistat suppositories and cream, and A&D ointment, however I'm debating whether I want to deal with this everyday? Also eat yogurt ... Show Full Comment

I took 100mg dose for approx. 3 months. Toward the end of that time, I had to have a Urine Culture done(I have major lower back problems and a lot of pain, so that is why I take the test) and it came back that I had alcohol in my urine!!!! I do not drink any alcohol. But, I did have yeast infections. With the kidneys shooting out more sugar and the infections, I think Invokana was the cause of ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Started with 100, upped to 300 after 8 months. No other medication. Did drop some weight. I do drink lots of water, but get terribly constipated, with hard and painful stools. I also have a UTI that comes and goes. And a skin rash from the sugar in the urine. Similar to a fungus. Not really sure I want to continue this medicine.

I had to stop taking it all together. My blood sugar has been pretty good every since because I drink mostly water throughout the day. Although they are not as bad as when I was on the medication I am st ... Show Full Comment

Been on Invokana for 2 months, started with 100mg for 10 days and 200mg thereafter. Before I was taking 2000mg of Metformin 120mg Diamicron 75 units of Lantus in the morning and 1 unit of Novorapid per 2 grams of carbs at meals. After one week on the 100 mg of Invokana I stopped both insulins. I continued taking the same doses of Metformin and Diamicron. The results have been miraculous, my averag ... Show Full Comment
