Canagliflozin and Metformin (Invokamet)
Canagliflozin/metformin is a combination prescription medication used in the management of type 2 diabetes, a condition where the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or the insulin that is produced doesn’t work effectively.
Canagliflozin/metformin is used to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes usually in combination with diet and exercise.
This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors and biguanides.
Canagliflozin works by inhibiting the SGLT2 protein, which is responsible for reabsorbing glucose (sugar) in the kidneys. By blocking this protein, canagliflozin causes excess glucose to be excreted in the urine, thereby lowering blood sugar levels. Metformin, on the other hand, works by decreasing glucose production in the liver and improving the body’s sensitivity to insulin, allowing it to use insulin more effectively.
This combination drug is particularly effective because it tackles blood sugar control in two different ways, making it a versatile option for people with type 2 diabetes who need to manage their blood sugar levels.
While canagliflozin/metformin is an effective treatment option for patients with type 2 diabetes, it is not meant for treating type 1 diabetes.
Canagliflozin/metformin is usually taken orally and comes in the form of a tablet. The exact dosage and the ratio of canagliflozin to metformin can vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and medical history.
Make sure to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions carefully when taking canagliflozin/metformin.
In the United States, canagliflozin/metformin is available under the following brand names:
- Invokamet XR
Common side effects associated with canagliflozin/metformin may include:
- Frequent urination
- Dry mouth
- Stomach problems (gas, mild stomach pain, indigestion, bloating, or diarrhea)
- Nausea or vomiting
More serious side effects which should be reported to your healthcare provider immediately may include:
- Signs of UTIs
- Signs of yeast infections
- Urgent, burning, or painful urination

The above lists of possible side effects associated with canagliflozin/metformin are not exhaustive and other side effects may occur. If you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking canagliflozin/metformin, it is important to contact your healthcare provider right away.
