    I took 100mg 2x a day for almost 2 weeks and did not have a blood sugar reading under 200. I then went up to 300mg 2x a day and my blood sugar readings got worse. I drank fluids like there was no tomorrow and went to the bathroom constantly. I would get so light headed in the mornings that I could hardly function. My doctor can't believe that I had so many issues because all his other patients ... Show Full Comment

    I took invokana for about six months, The drug made me urinate often and I did loose about 4 lbs. I was recently treated for a irregular heartbeat and had to have an ablation of my left ventriculle. I have since stopped the med after my surgery, I never had heart issues until I took this drug and I feel this made have been the catalyst to my irregular heart beat symptoms

    I have been on 300 milligrams for 3 months. I have been a diabetic for 20 years. With 2000 milligrams of metformin I got my a1c down from 8.1 to 6.8. Over time metformin looses effectiveness. I lost 13 lbs. Only side effect is increased urination which will go down over time. I have less yeast infections as well. I am very pleased with this drug so far.

    Been on for almost a year - A1c has went from 11.4 to 7.8. First time a medicine has helped. I have occasionally have to do a bathroom run in the middle of the night, but otherwise no side affects. 300mg dosage.
