    I took invokana for about six months, The drug made me urinate often and I did loose about 4 lbs. I was recently treated for a irregular heartbeat and had to have an ablation of my left ventriculle. I have since stopped the med after my surgery, I never had heart issues until I took this drug and I feel this made have been the catalyst to my irregular heart beat symptoms
