The New Warnings:
The FDA told the company to add a Black Box Warning and strengthened the WARNINGS, CONTRAINDICATIONS, and PRECAUTIONS sections of the label for Serzone. A Black Box warning tells prescribing physcians that the side effects of a drug are very serious. Most physcians will not prescribe a drug with such a warning unless the benefits clearly outweigh the risks.
