Accord Healthcare has recalled one lot of 12.5-milligram hydrochlorothiazide pills for the reason that one hundred-depend bottle became came upon to accept as true with one hundred spironolactone pills.
A pair of nationwide recalls, including tablets from different brand names and manufacturers, say that patients could face risky reactions or increase their cancer risk by taking unsafe or incorrect medication.
So far, Accord has received no reports of anyone getting sick.
Hydrochlorothiazide tablets are used to manage hypertension either alone or with other antihypertensive drugs.
The mislabeled bottles actually contain Spironolactone tablets which could cause in an increase in potassium levels in certain individuals. Anybody who experiences adverse reactions should report them to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program, which can be accessed online, sent by regular mail, or by fax. Hydrochlorothiazide is used to treat hypertension, also known as high blood pressure.
If the tablets in a bottle of Accord hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg do not match this description, or if consumers are unsure, they should return to their pharmacy or health care provider for confirmation, the FDA said. Drugs containing valsartan experienced a recall over concerns over the drug being tainted with a compound that potentially increases cancer risks.
