The FDA has
approved a reformulated version of Prozac, but this one is just for dogs. Reconcile,
a once-daily, chewable, dog-treat-flavored drug, was created to treat canine
separation anxiety. The product label does not contain the black box warning
that is mandatory on the version given to humans.
The label needs to
warn of the documented connection between antidepressants and violence towards
others, especially since this drug is designed for dogs who may already be
prone to aggressive or antisocial behavior.
ANH-USA is asking
the FDA to expand the black box warning on SSRIs for humans to include a
warning about increased risk of violence toward others, and to put a similar
black box warning on the version marketed for pets.
