- Invokana (canagliflozin)
- Jardiance (empagliflozin)

According to the FDA, these medications have been linked to ketoacidosis, which can lead to a diabetic coma, and kidney failure.
Some common signs of ketoacidosis that diabetes patients should be aware of include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Abdominal pain
- High blood sugar levels
- Severe fatigue
If you or someone you love exhibit any of the signs of ketoacidosis, seek medical attention immediately.
FDA Safety Warning
Between March 2013 and June 2014, the FDA received approximately 20 reports from patients who suffered ketoacidosis or other kidney problems after taking Invokana, Invokamet and other SGLT2s.
In May 2015, the FDA publicly issued a drug safety warning announcing their investigation into reports of ketoacidosis, ketosis and diabetic ketoacidosis. All patients who reported these issues were hospitalized or treated in the emergency room.
The FDA continued by urging health care professionals and patients to report any side effects involving SGKT2 inhibitors directly to the administration.
On May 16, 2017, the FDA added a black box warning to Invokana, Invokamet and Invokamet XR (canagliflozin), citing an increased risk of leg and foot amputations. The FDA found that patients who took Invokana had double the risk of leg and foot amputations as patients who took a placebo.

Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Jasmine helped me so so much I want to thank her ! And also Aaron , i was always scared after an accident , knowing I would have to deal with lawyers but not here .

Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
I would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
Great company and awesome service. Thanks Caroline fabos. Kudos to all.
