I just started invokana last week I love it much more than the metformin I wanted to go out and have a few drinks and when I say a few I mean quit a bit does anyone here drink with this medication is it super dangerous ?
Its super dangerous to go out and drink a lot when you're diabetic the immediate problem is that your blood sugar will sky rocket The long-term effects are on your liver and pancreas. Its your pancreas that makes insulin. Talk to your dr before you plan on drinking more then the equivalent of 2 glasses of wine.
