FDA Releases Safety Alert on Amputation Risk From Diabetes Drug

FDA Warning Invokamet, Invokana

In a new safety alert, the FDA is warning of a dangerous risk of leg and foot amputations stemming from canagliflozin, the active ingredient in both Invokamet and Invokana, two widely used diabetes drugs. The FDA released the safety alert after reviewing the final results from two different clinical trials that looked at the drugs and their long-lasting effects over a large sample of patients suffering from type 2 diabetes.
