What Is Invokana?
Invokana is part of a class of prescription medicines known as Sodium-glucose Cotransporter-2 (SGLT2) Inhibitors approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Canagliflozin is the active ingredient found in both Invokana and Invokamet.
It is a prescription medication used in combination with diet and exercise to lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes.
It is available as a single-ingredient product under the brand name Invokana and also in combination with the diabetes medicine metformin under the brand name Invokamet.
SGLT2 inhibitors like Invokana, Invokamet Farxiga, and Jardiance work by preventing the absorption of glucose by the kidneys, thus facilitating its removal from the body via urine.
