Blood pressure medication recalled over labeling error
A drug manufacturer is recalling bottles of a blood pressure medication after a mislabeled bottle was found containing a different medication, CBS affiliate WREG reported.
Accord Healthcare Inc. is voluntarily recalling one lot of Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets, 12.5 mg.
follows the discovery of a 100-count bottle of Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets was found at a pharmacy containing 100 Spironolactone Tablets, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.
“Based on findings of both preliminary and interim investigations carried out at the manufacturing site, Accord believes that no other lots of Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets are involved in this mix-up,” the FDA said.
According to WREG, the tablets are light orange to peach colored, round with an 'H' on one side and a number one on the other side.
Anyone with the product, or anyone who believes they may have it, should return to their local pharmacy with the drug in question.
