    Comment:
    Invokana was the worst drug I have ever taken. Caused dry mouth, which I could have dealt with & vaginal/genital itching & extreme pain & even swelling & I guess yeast infection, which I haven't head for years. I was on it for less than a week along w/Metformin. Acute agony from this med. I think it should be taken off the market.

    While my blood sugar is not well under control after nearly 6 months on this medication, it has helped me lose 29 pounds.
