    Started on 300mg June 8th, 2014. Went from 278 pounds to 237 pounds in 6 months. My A1C went from 8.4 to 7.2. Dr took me off Metformin in October due to kidney function test results (I had the same issue 3 years ago). Other than peeing all friggin day, I feel great. I now know what "urgency" means when it comes to urination. Expensive meds, however. I am not sure I can afford much ... Show Full Comment

    Started with 100mg. two weeks, then started 300mg. My blood sugar numbers good,but having major yeast infections. Dr. said treat over counter 7 days, hasn't work. Ready to call Dr. & ask if this medicine going to cause these infections all time then I want to stop. Already had to stop Metformin because of side effects. Not pleased.

    I have lost enough water in my legs to need new pants. My blood sugar has been stable. I do need to drink a little more water but I needed to do that any way. I am now only getting twice a night.

    I began taking Invokana 300 mg one month ago and my H A1C has gone from 8.6 to 7.6. It has never been this low and I have been on insulin for 24 years. Also it has reduced my appetite and any desire for sweets or over-eating and I have lost 8 lbs. My insulin is reduced by half already and I think this is a miracle drug. I will stay on this as long as my Dr tells me to. :)
