  • The recommended starting dose is 100mg once a day. In patients tolerating Invokana at this dose, and who have an eGFR ≥60 mL/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
