Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to tegaserod maleate (CAS RN 189188-57-6). Tegaserod originally received approval from the US FDA in 2002 for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). It was, however, voluntarily withdrawn from widespread use in the US market in 2007 after concerns arose over the possibility that tegaserod could potentially cause dangerous cardiovascular events in patients. Since then, closer evaluations of the original data suggesting such cardiovascular risk have resulted in the limited reintroduction or 're-approval' of tegaserod for treatment of IBS-C, specifically in female patients less than 65 years of age and whom are considered to be at a lower risk of a cardiovascular event than the broader population. Tegaserod subsequently gained reapproval in April of 2019. Nevertheless, tegaserod remains un-approved in certain regions. Tegaserod is a serotonin-4 (5-HT4) receptor agonist indicated for the treatment of adult women less than 65 years of age with irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). The safety and effectiveness of tegaserod in men with IBS-C has not been established.
