    I have been using this medication for 6 months. It worked well in helping to reduce my AIC, but I just hate the vaginal bacterial infections. I read that after 6 months of using the medication the infections will subside. I still get them. I do take a pro-biotic tablet, but it's not that strong. I will try taking some of the expensive Ultimate Flora Women's Complete 90 Billion pro-biotic t ... Show Full Comment

    I am always scared when I take any new meds, after I took Invokana, I felt the change in my body, I was a little fatigued for a week, but got adjusted to it. After a month and a half of taking it, my daily clucose readings are lower and I lost over 11 pounds and I never felt better. I like this medication a lot, it has drastically changed my life.

    I had the typical yeast infection at the 100 mg dosage. When I went to the 300 mg dosage, I began to have terribly servere and painful leg and foot cramps almost immediately every single night. I did not have uninterrupted sleep for the entire time I took this drug. I think it is very dangerous, causing severe dehydration which, even after 3 weeks off the drug, I continue to experience. And I ... Show Full Comment

    I highly suggest avoiding this medication if you possibly can. I was hospitalized for a week due to a poor reaction to this medication. I met numerous doctors as I was the first person in my general area of the country to have had the reaction. Thankfully I'm young so I managed to survive. I was told had I been 50 or more, I would've died. I had a severe amount of acidity in my blood, was ... Show Full Comment

    My a1c was 9.9 now its 7.0. Wonderful drug! I am up at night urinating but thats a small price to pay for good blood sugar. Metformin gave me shortness of breath and chest pains. I also take glipizide for my sugar. I am very happy with this med.
