Serentil / Mesoridazine

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:42 by admin
Serentil, also known as Mesoridazine, is an anti-psychotic drug typically used to treat schizophrenia and is in the phenothiazine class of drugs. Serentil is manufactured by Novartis Pharmaceuticals.

Recently the Food and Drug Administration and Novartis decided to limit the drug's use to those patients who have failed to respond to other anti-psychotic drugs. Concern has mounted after Serentil was shown to increase the heart's QT interval which may lead to fatal heart problems including arrhythmias and torsades de pointes-type arrhythmias.

See your doctor if you have experienced serious side effects associated with Serentil. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
