FDA warns against off-label use of ketoconazole

Family Medicine SmartBrief | May 23, 2016

Clinicians have been warned by the FDA to not prescribe ketoconazole tablets for use against skin and nail fungal infections because the risk of mortality and liver damage associated with the treatment outweigh its benefits. The FDA withdrew the skin and nail fungal infection indication of the drug in 2013 due to its potential risk for adverse events, and since then, intake of the drug has been linked to one death.
