While no cases have been settled yet regarding Invokana and Fournier’s gangrene or amputations, this is not the first time these drug manufacturers have been forced to pay for harm that they’ve caused people who took their medications. Patients who have been harmed by diabetes drugs they took to help them with their condition have received compensation including:
- $9 billion to a man who developed bladder cancer after taking the diabetes drug Actos. The judge in the case ordered Eli Lilly and Takeda to pay the main in 2014. Takeda agreed to pay an additional $2.37 billion to settle 9,000 more cases.
- Almost $1 billion settlement from GlaxoSmithKline for Avandia cases from 2010 to 2011. The company set aside an additional $3.4 billion for future Avandia settlements.
Patients who were harmed by dangerous these other diabetes drugs have been able to secure significant settlements and verdicts against the drug manufacturers. Like most cases that involve taking on large multinational companies, getting justice may only be possible with an experienced legal team that knows how to win, and win big.
Symptoms of Fournier’s gangrene
Fournier’s gangrene is a very serious infection of the genitals and the area around the genitals. Patients who began SGLT2 therapy and developed necrotizing fasciitis reported severe symptoms including:
- Pain in the genital or anal area
- Swelling of the affected area
- Unpleasant odor from the infected area
- A “crackling” sound when the affected area is touched
Treatment of this infection requires a prompt diagnosis of the condition, followed by intravenous fluids, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and surgery.

In some cases, doctors have had to amputate an Invokana patients’ limbs in order to save them from the drug’s side effects. Amputation of a leg, foot, or toe that occurred while or within 90 days of taking Invokana, Invokamet, or Invokamet XR can potentially be attributed to the drug. If you believe this could be the reason you had to have an amputation, a lawyer can help determine if you have a case and if you are able to seek compensation.
