Temporary Amnesia Possibly Linked to Levitra

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The erectile dysfunction (ED) drug Levitra may be associated with a form of temporary amnesia. For that reason, the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) said the precautions section of the Levitra label will be changed to note its possible association with this disorder, known as transient global amnesia, or TGA.

According to the FDA, the Levitra label got the transient global amnesia note “because of a limited number of post-marketing reports of men who experienced TGA” around the time they took Levitra. The FDA is stressing that no direct link has been found between TGA and Levitra. The agency has also said that the reported instances of TGA in men taking Levitra may have been spurred by something else, even by sex.

TGA is a sudden, temporary episode of memory loss that can’t be attributed to a more common neurological condition, such as epilepsy, transient ischemic attack, stroke or head injury. During an episode of transient global amnesia, recall of recent events simply vanishes, so a victim is unable to remember where they are or how they got there. They may also draw a blank when asked to remember things that happened a day, a month or even a year ago.

Victims of TGA do remember who they are, and they will recognize family members and others they have known for a long time. When an episode of TGA is over, a victim will remember nothing that happened while their memory was impaired, and might not recall the hours beforehand.

The labeling for Viagra and Cialis, two other ED drugs, will not undergo changes for TGA at this time. So far, the FDA has refused to comment on any possible label modifications for those medications. Both Pfizer, which makes Viagra, and Eli Lilly, the marketer of Cialis, have refused to speculate on any possible label changes related to TGA.
