Indications

Invokana is a prescription medication indicated:

  • Along with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar (glucose) in adults with type 2 diabetes
  • To reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death in adults with type 2 diabetes who have known cardiovascular disease
  • To reduce the risk of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), worsening kidney function, cardiovascular death, and hospitalization for heart failure in adults with type 2 diabetes and diabetic kidney disease with a certain amount of protein in the urine

This drug, which is classified as a sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor, blocks some of the sugar and sodium reabsorption in the kidneys and works with the body to flush sugar away in your urine.

The recommended dosage of Invokana is 100 mg once daily, taken before the first meal of the day.

For additional glucose control, the dosage of Invokana may be increased to the maximum recommended dosage of 300 mg once daily.

Dosage recommendations for persons with kidney impairment are based on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), a measure of how well your kidneys are working.

eGFR Recommended Dosage
30 to less than 60 100 mg once daily
Less than 30 Starting Invokana is not recommended; however, patients taking Invokana with albuminuria (too much protein in your urine) greater than 300 mg/day may continue Invokana 100 mg once daily to reduce the risk of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), doubling of serum creatinine, cardiovascular death, and hospitalization for heart failure

FAQs

How do I know if Invokana is working?

It’s important to keep track of your blood sugar levels as directed by your healthcare provider. Consider keeping a journal and share your progress at your next appointment. Your healthcare provider will check your diabetes with regular blood tests, including tests of your blood sugar levels, your A1C, and tests to measure your kidney function.

If Invokana helps my body get rid of some sugar, can it also help me lose weight?

Although Invokana is not a weight-loss medicine, and each person is different, and people can experience reduction in weight, on average 2–3%. Results may vary by dose and when used alone or with certain other diabetes medications.

How can I avoid yeast infections while taking Invokana?

Yeast infections of the vagina may be minimized by avoiding douches, tight undergarments, and scented hygiene products. Yeast infections of the penis may be minimized by regular washing with soap and water, including under the foreskin if you are uncircumcised. Talk to your healthcare provider about what to do if you get symptoms of a yeast infection of the vagina or penis.
