I started taking the Invokana tablets a few weeks ago, the first couple of days I was constantly having a wee, finding that's settled down a bit but am waking in the night to go to loo which is annoying. I then had some dizziness, again that's mostly settled down, anyhow, for the last week I've been feeling nauseous all day long, and got very little appetite. I thought I might be coming down with something as I had bad aches all over on Thursday and very tired, but that's gone and I've woken up today with pains in my abdomen/kidney area and feeling very nauseous.
At the same time as starting the tablets I decided to really reduce portion size and go lower carb as much as possible. So I don't know whether these symptoms attribute to invokana, just a result of the lowering of my bg levels (as they were running rather high most of the time), some sort of bug or a reaction to reducing my food intake. I could quite honestly not eat the last few days, I'm not even bothered about Easter eggs today which is unheard of for me. Ive got a leg of lamb in the fridge and the thought of having to cook dinner for the family today is turning my stomach. I've not got weighing scales here but I would think I've lost quite a bit of weight in the last fortnight as I've got fist sized dents appeared in my jelly belly where the weight tends to go from first.
I've never had a UTI so don't know what that feels like? I know that Invokana common side effect.
