It should be called REVOKEana Not INVOKana. total disaster--i work in a call center--i cannot get up to pee every few minutes--just about cost me my job --yeast infections from hell.

I started this medication (Invokanamet Invokana w/ Metformin 50/500 bid) around two weeks ago. I believe that my body is getting use to the new medication.

I have not had any unusual symptoms with this medication. It does make you urinate often and you should prepare a plan for hydrating yourself for the fist two or three weeks.
