Xenazine Drug Description
Xenazine®
(tetrabenazine) Tablets

DEPRESSION AND SUICIDALITY
XENAZINE can increase the risk of depression and suicidal thoughts and behavior
(suicidality) in patients with Huntington's disease. Anyone considering the
use of XENAZINE must balance the risks of depression and suicidality with the
clinical need for control of choreiform movements. Close observation of patients
for the emergence or worsening of depression, suicidality, or unusual changes
in behavior should accompany therapy. Patients, their caregivers, and families
should be informed of the risk of depression and suicidality and should be instructed
to report behaviors of concern promptly to the treating physician.
Particular caution should be exercised in treating patients with a history
of depression or prior suicide attempts or ideation, which are increased in
frequency in Huntington's disease. XENAZINE is contraindicated in patients
who are actively suicidal, and in patients with untreated or inadequately
treated depression (see CONTRAINDICATIONS;
WARNINGS - Risk of Depression and Suicidality;
and PRECAUTIONS - Information for Patients).
