I have been taking Invokana for a month now. The dr. prescribed 100mg but recently boost to 300mg, for type 2 diabetes. The only side effect I am experiencing is dry mouth. I take one pill a day. I did notice a difference when I ran after she increased the dosage.

I have been on the maximum dosage for about a year. I was a bit depressed because I was laid of from my job of 18 years and have not been taking care of myself and eating everything in sight. Even though I have been eating horrible my Diabetes is down to normal with this drug with absolutely no side effects. I am amazed.

Comment:
I've been on 100mg (plus metformin) for about two weeks and so far my BG has dropped by 30mg/ml and my weight has decreased by 8 pounds (probably water loss). I have been deliberately drinking more water to ward off dehydration, but also notice increased urination.

Comment:
I have been on the 100mg about a month and my blood sugar is in normal ranges. It was running 250 to 300 even on insulin. I have cut my insulin back 50% and so far no side effects. Wonder drug so far.
