FDA Announces Voluntary Withdrawal of Pergolide Products

ion is a condition in which valves don’t close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward across the valve. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fatigue and heart palpitations.

In light of this additional post-market safety information, the companies that manufacture and sell pergolide will stop shipping pergolide for distribution and, in cooperation with FDA, will withdraw the products from the market.

Permax was approved in 1988 for Eli Lilly and Company as an adjunctive therapy with levodopa in Parkinson’s disease. Valvular heart disease was first described in association with pergolide in 2002. In 2003, FDA asked Lilly to add valvulopathy (abnormality of cardiac valves) to the warnings section of Permax labeling, at which time a Dear Healthcare Practitioner letter was sent by Lilly. In 2006, the warning was upgraded to a black box warning, the FDA’s strongest form of warning, because of new data concerning risks of heart valve damage.

FDA today is issuing a Public Health Advisory (PHA) detailing the removal of pergolide products from the market. The PHA, which is available at www.fda.gov/cder/drug/advisory/pergolide.htm includes information and recommended actions for physicians, pharmacists and patients.

The effect of the voluntary withdrawal on supplies of pergolide currently in pharmacies will not be immediate. This delay will allow time for health care providers and patients to discuss appropriate treatment options and time to change treatments.

FDA is working with the manufacturers of pergolide to determine if it might be possible, once the drug is withdrawn from the market, to make the drug available under an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) for those few patients who are currently receiving pergolide and who cannot be successfully converted to other available treatments.
