June 13, 2016: FDA Updates Previous Warning to Express Zecuity Patch Scar Burn Recall

Zecuity Patch Scar Burn Recall
On June 1, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported the possible risk of serious burns and potential permanent scarring associated with the use of the migraine headache treatment device, the Zecuity patch.

June 13, 2016 Zecuity Patch Scar Burn Update

Zecuity manufacturer Teva Pharmaceuticals has decided to temporarily suspend sales, marketing, and distribution to investigate the cause of burns and scars associated with the Zecuity patch. Health care professionals should discontinue prescribing Zecuity, and patients should stop using any remaining patches and contact their prescribers for an alternative migraine medicine.

Many Reports Affirm Zecuity Patch Scar Burns

In September 2015, as marketing of the Zecuity patch began, a large number of patients reportedly suffered burns or scars on the skin where the patch was worn, including descriptions of severe redness, pain, skin discoloration, blistering, and cracked skin.

The Zecuity Patch Scar Burn Recall

The Zecuity patch contains the active ingredient sumatriptan, a prescription medicine used to treat acute migraine headaches in adults. The patch delivery system is designed to deliver a dose of medicine by way of a single-use, battery-powered patch that is wrapped around the upper arm or thigh. It should remain in place for no longer than four hours.
