Middle aged male with Type2 here. Overall my BS numbers were OK but could be better (that's mainly on me due to my diet could be better). Invokana caused my BS to plummet to normal ranges (and was a cause for my first sub 100 since I was diagnosed). Definitely see increased urination, but not uncontrollable. Doctor warned me about possible urinary tract yeast infections but haven't see ... Show Full Comment

I just started this drug today but I am mostly writing to tell everyone I got a discount card from my doctor and only will pay 5 dollars a month for a year. Then hopefully my insurance will pay more than my co pay of 35 dollars. But 5 dollars is great, Will definitely be getting some yogurt to combat the yeast infections.

Have been taking for 3 weeks. Have noticed decrease in BS at various times througout the day. Missed one day and noticed elevated blood sugar. Side effects are increased urination and subsequent thirst. Causes you to drink more water which is good for you anyway. Lost about 4 pounds.

Been on this for a little over 2 weeks now,and love it. My glucose dropped from 270's to 130's in this short amount of time. If you keep hydrated,you will feel great. As an MLT,I see the results daily of un-controled glucose. The minor side effects are well worth this. Metformin did nothing but make me sick all the time.
