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. :)

I have tried everything to help my Diabetes of 24 years. Only this one, accompanied by Metformin, has worked! 30 days on 100 mg and now 30 days into my 300 mg. I feel reborn! I LOVE this medication! I have lost weight, my A1C has dropped a lot and I only have a minor yeast infection which hardly bothers me at all. I am not urinating any more than I was before but I am feeling constipated. My lant ... Show Full Comment

A1C went down 1.1 points after 6 months on 100, so, we upped it to 300 and I'll see next checkup if it makes results in a similar positive difference. Been having troubles with bowels, but keep it mostly regular with oatmeal.. I drink a gallon a day and make trips to the sandbox at least every hour.. This med works for me, minimal side effects.
