‡ CUVPOSA was tested in a study. At the end of this study—8 weeks after starting treatment—75% of patients who were given CUVPOSA had less drooling than before the start of treatment. Only 11% of patients who were given the placebo (similar looking and tasting liquid to CUVPOSA but with no medicine in it) were drooling less after 8 weeks than they did at the start of the study. As early as 4 weeks into the study, some patients given CUVPOSA already saw they were drooling less. In the clinical trial, half the patients, chosen randomly, were given CUVPOSA; the other half were given the placebo. Neither the patients nor the doctors knew who got which until the study was completed.
CUVPOSA is a prescription medication to help reduce chronic severe drooling in children aged 3 to 16 years with neurologic conditions that cause too much (abnormal) drooling.
