If you have type 2 diabetes, you may try to manage your condition through diet and exercise. When those efforts do not lower your blood sugar levels sufficiently, your doctor may prescribe some medicine to achieve the desired results. However, serious side effects have been reported about a group of SGLT2 inhibitors as well as Invega, which is used to treat schizophrenia.

Farxiga Side Effects

Farxiga and other SGLT2 inhibitors alter normal kidney function to increase the amount of sugar excreted in the urine, promote glucose production and lower blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. However, the side effects of Farxiga include an increased the risk of:

  • Abnormal weight loss
  • Bladder cancer
  • Death
  • Heart attack
  • Hypersensitivity reactions
  • Ketoacidosis
  • Kidney stones, failure and impairment
  • Stroke
  • Urinary tract infections

Invokana Side Effects

In May 2015, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) released a report about Invokana side effects. The serious complications resulting from this medication were higher than 92% of all the drugs reviewed. At least 457 patients experienced problems during the first year the drug was on the market.

The serious health complications and side effects of Invokana included:

Along with the latter, some of the most frequently experienced problems after taking Invokana are changes in urination and genital yeast infections. The most serious side effects include a heart attack and kidney damage or failure as well as strokes. The FDA has also issued a warning about ketoacidosis, which requires hospitalization and can cause fatal swelling of the brain, severe dehydration and coma.
