Hi,

I received this on my email this morning:

Medscape Drug Alert

Medscape from WebMD

Marketing of Zelnorm Suspended; Drug Linked to Slight Increase in CV Events

Marketing of Zelnorm Suspended;

Drug Linked to Slight Increase in CV Events

Novartis, in compliance with an FDA request, has suspended marketing and sales of its irritable bowel syndrome/constipation drug Zelnorm, after an analysis of its clinical database pointed to a higher incidence of MI, stroke, and unstable angina among patients taking the drug.

My GI doc was just telling me today that considering my cardiac hx he is VERY glad he did not put me on Zelnorm for my gastroparesis...although nothing else has worked as of yet! Although I know many GP suffers for whom Zelnorm is the only drug that works...I hope something can work out for them.
