Invokana and Weight Loss
Most people who use Invokana® (canagliflozin) tolerate the medicine well. However, this medicine can cause side effects in some people. Some of the common side effects of Invokana include increased urination, bladder infections, and yeast infections.
There are also some side effects of Invokana which may not necessarily be a negative reaction for some people. For instance, weight loss is a possible Invokana side effect. Clinical studies have shown that people taking Invokana lost an average of 2.8 to 3.9 kg (about 6 to 9 lbs) over a period of 26 weeks.
