Europe: Agradil and Agreal Should be Withdrawn

The European Medicines Agency recommends the withdrawal of products containing veralipride for treating menopausal hot flushes, including Agreal or Agradil.

Veralipride was withdrawn from the Spanish market in 2005 because of reports of serious side effects affecting the nervous system.

The drug is associated with side effects, including depression, anxiety and tardive dyskinesia - both during and after treatment.
