Started with 100, upped to 300 after 8 months. No other medication. Did drop some weight. I do drink lots of water, but get terribly constipated, with hard and painful stools. I also have a UTI that comes and goes. And a skin rash from the sugar in the urine. Similar to a fungus. Not really sure I want to continue this medicine.

Although they are not as bad as when I was on the medication I am st ... Show Full Comment

Been on Invokana for 2 months, started with 100mg for 10 days and 200mg thereafter.

After one week on the 100 mg of Invokana I stopped both insulins. I continued taking the same doses of Metformin and Diamicron. The results have been miraculous, my averag ... Show Full Comment

I haven't been taking this long but I've seen my sugar levels drop. I haven't had any of the side effects listed and I was very nervous about it. I get yeast infections and UTIs easily....thought this was a recipe for me to get more. So far so good!!
