Olanzapine: Drug Safety Communication – FDA Warns About Rare But Serious Skin Reactions

Including Zyprexa, Zyprexa Zydis, Zyprexa Relprevv, and Symbyax

 

AUDIENCE: Psychiatry, Dermatology, Patient

ISSUE: FDA is warning that the antipsychotic medicine olanzapine can cause a rare but serious skin reaction that can progress to affect other parts of the body. FDA is adding a new warning to the drug labels for all olanzapine-containing products that describes this severe condition known as Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms (DRESS).

A search of the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) database identified 23 cases of DRESS reported with olanzapine worldwide since 1996, when the first olanzapine-containing product was approved. FAERS includes only reports submitted to FDA, so there are likely to be additional cases about which FDA is unaware. One patient taking olanzapine experienced DRESS and died; however, this patient was taking multiple medicines that could also have contributed to death (see the Data Summary section of the Drug Safety Communication for more information).

DRESS may start as a rash that can spread to all parts of the body. It can include fever and swollen lymph nodes and a swollen face. It causes a higher-than-normal number of infection-fighting white blood cells called eosinophils that can cause inflammation, or swelling. DRESS can result in injury to organs including the liver, kidneys, lungs, heart, or pancreas, and can lead to death. DRESS is a potentially fatal drug reaction with a mortality rate of up to 10%.

BACKGROUND: Olanzapine is an antipsychotic medicine used to treat mental health disorders schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It can decrease hallucinations, in which people hear or see things that do not exist, and other psychotic symptoms such as disorganized thinking. Olanzapine is available under the brand names Zyprexa, Zyprexa Zydis, Zyprexa Relprevv, and Symbyax, and also as generics.

RECOMMENDATIONS: Patients taking olanzapine-containing products who develop a fever with a rash and swollen lymph glands, or swelling in the face, should seek medical care right away. The combined symptoms together are commonly seen in DRESS. Talk with your health care professional about any questions or concerns. Do not stop taking olanzapine or change your dose without first talking with your health care professional. Sudden stopping of the medicine can be harmful without your health care professional’s direct supervision.

Health care professionals should immediately stop treatment with olanzapine if DRESS is suspected.  There is currently no specific treatment for DRESS. The important ways to manage DRESS are early recognition of the syndrome, discontinuation of the offending agent as soon as possible, and supportive care. Treatment with systemic corticosteroids should be considered in cases with extensive organ involvement. When prescribing the medicine, explain the signs and symptoms of severe skin reactions to your patients and tell them when to seek immediate medical care.

Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events or side effects related to the use of these products to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program:

Interim Guidance for Zika Virus Testing of Urine — United States, 2016
MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2016;65(Early Release)

Recent reports suggest Zika virus RNA can be detected in urine for at least 2 weeks after onset of symptoms. Currently, the CDC Trioplex rRT-PCR assay is the only diagnostic tool authorized by the Food and Drug Administration for Zika virus testing of urine. On the basis of the newly available data, CDC recommends Zika virus rRT-PCR be performed on urine collected <14 days after onset of symptoms in patients with suspected Zika virus disease.

Comparison of Test Results for Zika Virus RNA in Urine, Serum, and Saliva Specimens from Persons with Travel-Associated Zika Virus Disease — Florida, 2016
Andrea M. Bingham, PhD; Marshall Cone, MPH; Valerie Mock; et al.
MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2016;65(Early Release)

As of April 20, 2016, the Florida Department of Health Bureau of Public Health Laboratories (BPHL) tested specimens from 913 persons who met state criteria for Zika virus testing. On the basis of previous small case studies reporting real time reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction detection of Zika virus RNA in urine, saliva, and semen, the BPHL collected multiple specimen types from persons with suspected Zika virus disease. BPHL testing results suggest urine might be the preferred specimen type to identify acute Zika virus disease.

Reduced Incidence of Chikungunya Virus Infection in Communities with Ongoing Aedes Aegypti Mosquito Trap Intervention Studies — Salinas and Guayama, Puerto Rico, November 2015–February 2016
Olga D. Lorenzi, MS; Chelsea Major, MPH; Veronica Acevedo, MS; et al.
MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2016;65(Early Release)

Conventional vector control approaches often fail to result in effective and sustainable prevention of infection with viruses transmitted by Aedes mosquitoes. CDC developed an Autocidal Gravid Ovitrap (AGO) to attract and capture the female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes responsible for transmission of infectious agents to humans. Since 2012, four communities in two municipalities in southern Puerto Rico, Salinas and Guayama, have participated in an ongoing field trial of AGO traps to control Ae. aegypti mosquitoes. According to preliminary findings, lower incidence of chikungunya virus infection in the intervention compared with nonintervention communities occurred in the context of tenfold lower mosquito densities in the intervention areas with AGO traps.


Revelation 19:16 On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. This blog is to present Up To Date Prophetic News. My prayer is that this blog will bring others to know Jesus as their Savior if they do not know him the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
