Temporary Supply of Marplan (isocarboxacid) Tablets to Address Critical Drug Shortage


Marplan® (isocarboxazid) 10 mg Tablets is currently on FDA’s Drug Shortage List. In order to address the critical shortage of Marplan® in the United States (U.S.) market, Validus Pharmaceuticals LLC has coordinated with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to make Marplan® available to patients in the U.S. who are in desperate need of relief from their illness. Validus has imported another manufacturer’s Marplan (isocarboxacid) for the U.S. market. This product is manufactured and marketed in Denmark by MediLink.

At this time, Validus Pharmaceuticals LLC is the only entity authorized by the FDA to import and distribute MediLink’s Marplan (isocarboxacid) 10 mg Tablets in the U.S. FDA has not approved MediLink’s Marplan (isocarboxacid) 10 mg Tablets but does not object to its importation and distribution in the U.S.
