Norpramin (desipramine hydrochloride) Lawsuit


On December 2, 2009 the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in association with Sanofi-Aventis notified healthcare professionals that there were substantial changes made to the Warnings and Overdosage sections in the labeling for the popular antidepressant Norpramin (generic: desipramine hydrochloride).

The manufacturer has issued the following warning:

Extreme caution should be used when this drug is given to patients who have a family history of sudden death, cardiac dysrhythmias, and cardiac conduction disturbances; and that seizures precede cardiac dysrhythmias and death in some patients.
