THE SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS OF FOURNIER’S GANGRENE
Additionally, the FDA states that users should, “seek medical attention immediately if they experience any symptoms of tenderness, redness, or swelling of the genitals or the area from the genitals back to the rectum and have a fever above 100.4 F or a general feeling of being unwell. These symptoms can worsen quickly, so it is important to seek treatment right away.”
It is most common for the disease to affect males in the age demographic of 50-80 years old but has been found recently to affect both men and women soon after taking Invokana, Farxiga or Jardiance. To compare, in the prior 30 years there were only 6 cases of Fournier’s gangrene identified in reviews of other antidiabetics drug classes. The treatment of Fournier’s gangrene usually involves strong antibiotics or even surgical removal of the tissue. Commonly, patients require multiple surgeries and are potentially at risk of losing their genital organs.
INVOKANA FOURNIER’S GANGRENE LAWSUITS
Lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson who is the manufacturer of Invokana contain allegations that the company was negligent in properly testing the drug, that they hid the dangers from the FDA , and that they failed to sufficiently warn patients of the very serious and dangerous side effects such as Fournier’s gangrene. Most of the claims apply to patients that suffered from the serious side effects or were hospitalized due to the use of Invokana.
