Suicidal ideation and behavior, including completed suicides, occurred in patients treated with Siliq during clinical trials, but a definite link with the drug has not been determined.,

Components of the Siliq REMS program include:

  • Prescriber Certification and Patient Counseling
  • A Patient-Prescriber Agreement Form to seek medical care if suicidal thoughts, depression, or mood changes occur
  • A Medication Guide to inform patients of the risk of using Siliq
  • Pharmacies must be certified only dispense to patients who are authorized to receive Siliq.
