Invokana Indication Icon

Indication

Invokana is indicated for the treatment of adults with insufficiently controlled type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) as an adjunct to diet and exercise:

  • as monotherapy when metformin is considered inappropriate due to intolerance or contraindications 1
  • in addition to other medicinal products for the treatment of diabetes. 1

Both improvement in glycaemic control and reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality are an integral part of the treatment of T2DM. 1

  • The recommended starting dose is 100mg once a day. In patients tolerating Invokana at this dose, and who have an eGFR ≥60mL/min/1.73m2 and who need tighter glycaemic control, the dose can be increased to 300mg once daily.
  • When Invokana is used as an add-on to insulin or an insulin secretagogue, e.g. sulphonylurea, a lower dose of insulin or sulphonylurea may be considered to reduce the risk of hypoglycaemia. 1
