Decades-long regulatory odyssey ends with FDA nod for Fabre-Kramer's depression med Exxua
SEPTEMBER 28, 2023
Fabre-Kramer Pharmaceuticals' major depressive disorder (MDD) drug gepirone has been rejected by the FDA not once, not twice, but three times since the turn of the millennium. | Fabre-Kramer's Exxua suffered three prior FDA rejections before scoring an FDA approval for major depressive disorder last week. Its label doesn't include sexual dysfunction as an adverse reaction, which is rare among antidepressants.
