Tulsi Gabbard: The Biden Administration Is Promoting Child Abuse

Former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard took to her social media pages over the weekend to highlight a new Food and Drug Administration warning about puberty blockers.

According to the FDA, these drugs can cause blindness and other permanent injuries when taken by children.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has added a warning about the risk of pseudotumor cerebri (idiopathic intracranial hypertension) to the labeling for gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists that are approved for the treatment of central precocious puberty in pediatric patients. These products include Lupron Depot-Ped (leuprolide acetate), Fensolvi (leuprolide acetate), Synarel (nafarelin), Supprelin LA (histrelin) and Triptodur (triptorelin).

The new warning includes recommendations to monitor patients taking GnRH agonists for signs and symptoms of pseudotumor cerebri, including headache, papilledema, blurred or loss of vision, diplopia, pain behind the eye or pain with eye movement, tinnitus, dizziness and nausea.

The FDA assessed the potential risk of pseudotumor cerebri with use of GnRH agonists in pediatric patients by reviewing post-marketing safety data submitted by the GnRH agonist manufacturers, searching the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System and conducting a literature search.
