Manufacturer Eli Lilly & Co
Manufacturer Eli Lilly & Co. announced that a black-box warning will be added to the drug`s label in the United States. Such a warning is the most serious that can be added to a medication`s label, and similar warnings will be added to the drug`s labels in other countries. The company said a study showed instances of suicidal thinking were rare.
In a statement, the FDA said it \"is advising health care providers and caregivers that children and adolescents being treated with Strattera should be closely monitored for clinical worsening, as well as agitation, irritability, suicidal thinking or behaviors, and unusual changes in behavior, especially during the initial few months of therapy or when the dose is changed.\"
Eli Lilly said it provided the FDA results from a Strattera clinical trial of 1,357 patients that found five youths taking the medication reported having suicidal thoughts, while none of 851 patients taking a placebo reported having any. One young person taking Strattera attempted suicide, the company said.
There was no evidence of increased suicidal thoughts in adults taking Strattera, which also goes by the generic name atomoxetine, the Indianapolis-based company said.
The warning is the result of a larger FDA review of psychiatric drugs and their possible association with suicide, the agency said.
Strattera has been available since 2002 and been used by more than two million people, the FDA said.
The drug won praise from some doctors and 온라인카지노 parents when it became available because, unlike Ritalin, it is not a stimulant, a class of drug that can be addictive. But its chemical makeup is similar to certain antidepressants, which last year were associated with an increased risk of suicide.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder affects as many as 7 percent of school-aged children and 4 percent of adults in the United States.
Strattera`s worldwide sales have dropped lately, falling 31 percent to $123.5 million during this year`s second quarter from a year earlier.
Lilly warned doctors in December to stop using Strattera in patients with jaundice or who show signs of liver problems, and it placed a warning on the label and in prescribing information after at least two patients on the medication developed liver problems.
Still, the company says it believes the drug is safe.
\"While suicidal thinking was uncommon in patients on the medication during clinical trials, it is important for parents to be aware it can occur, and to discuss any unusual symptoms with a physician,\" said Alan Breier, Lilly`s chief medical officer, in a statement. \"Lilly continues to view Strattera as a safe and effective treatment option, and those doing well on the medication should be able to continue their treatment with confidence.\"
