U.S. moves to stop sale of some nausea drugs

By Jishpar     Apr 8, 2007 in Health
U.S. health officials said companies should stop selling medicines that contain trimethobenzamide to relieve nausea and vomiting because they have not been proven effective
The Food and Drug Administration said that the medicines which are prescribed to children and adults to more than 2 million people every year with names including Tigan, Tebamide, T-Gen, Trimazide and Trimethobenz are not approved
"Drugs containing trimethobenzamide in suppository form lack evidence of effectiveness," a notice from the Food and Drug Administration said.
It is identified five companies are manufacturing this drugs. They are Bio Pharm Inc., Dispensing Solutions Inc., G & W Laboratories Inc., Paddock Laboratories Inc. and Perrigo Co.
Allan Slizewski, vice president for sales and marketing at Paddock Laboratories, said "when we hear from the FDA, we will comply with them."
