Hi All~ I am new to this group. NOT new to diabetes though. I was diagnosed about 10 years with type 2. I take 1000mg of Metformin twice a day and was doing very well for many years so no complaints with that. However my levels have been creeping up so doctor wants to add this new med along with the Metformin. Its called Invokana. I am super sensitive to most medicines due to some other health issues I have so I am very cautious with anything new. I am hoping someone here can give me some feedback on this medicine.

Take Care, Dawn

" I just read what Grannie posted, doesn't sound like this has been out too long, which would be a flag to me, plus I don't like the side effects, but discuss with your doctor. voice your concerns, see if maybe something else to try first. You are at the max amount for the metformin and this disease does progress in many. "

" Grannie~ Oh no...yeast infections! Geesh, can't wait to get that! thanks so much for the link.

My doctor is a strong believer in "new" meds. He feels they are the BEST on the market. Ok, one could agree with him, however I feel that 'new' isn't always better! IMHO, anyway.

I will be praying for success with this new med!

Take Care, Dawn "

" Hi,
I asked my doctor about Invokana and she feels it's too soon to tell how often it might lead to urinary tract infections and issues. Apparently there is some risk of that. That, anyway, was my doctor's opinion.

I'm on 2000mg of Metformin until we learn more.
