When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Invokana include the following:
 
  • Invokana comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • Take this medication shortly before the first meal of the day, as the drug tends to decrease blood sugar levels after meals.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
 

Dosing Information

The dose of Invokana your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • How well your diabetes is controlled
  • Other medical conditions you may have (especially kidney disease)
  • Other medications you are taking.
 
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
