What is the problem with Zelnorm?
Zelnorm is a prescription medication used to treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). It was approved by the FDA in July 2002 for IBS and constipation. Before its removal from the market, Zelnorm was one of the top 200 most prescribed brand-name medications in the United States. In March 2007, the FDA concluded that the benefits of Zelnorm no longer out weighed the risks. The FDA requested that sales of Zelnorm be halted as a result of controlled clinical trials of the drug showing an increased risk of serious cardiovascular adverse events (e.g., angina, heart attacks, and strokes) associated with use of Zelnorm. In addition to serious cardiovascular injuries, there is also a potential link between Zelnorm and gastrointestinal injuries such as Intestinal Ischemia, Colonic Ischemia, Ischemic Colitis, Dead Bowel, Ulcerative Colitis and Chron’s Disease.
