FDA Issues Safety Warning for Zecuity Migraine Patch, Warns of Burn and Scar Risk

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers that a medical device used to treat migraine headaches may cause serious injuries.

The Zecuity Patch uses the drug sumatriptan to treat the symptoms of acute migraine headaches. The patch is designed to be worn on the thigh or upper arm for periods of up to four hours and uses a battery-powered system to deliver sumatriptan into the user’s bloodstream.

The FDA is now warning that the Zecuity patch has caused severe burns and permanent scarring in many patients. The FDA advises Zecuity users to remove the patch immediately at the first sign of pain or discomfort.

Patients that have worn the Zecuity patch have experienced serious injuries including:

  • Severe redness
  • Pain
  • Skin discoloration
  • Blistering
  • Scarring
  • Cracked skin
  • Burns
