High blood pressure medication recalled by FDA

Many Florida residents use prescription medication. The majority of the population will have at least one prescription they take daily at some point in their lives. They trust that the medication will be safe and effective and luckily most of the time this is the case. Unfortunately, unsafe drugs also are on the market and there are prescription drug recalls that occur.

A drug recall has recently occurred involving high blood pressure medication. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a voluntary recall of several medications that include the ingredient called valsartan. Some of these drugs include an impurity called N-nitrosodimethylamine which is classified as a possible human carcinogen. Over 100,000,000 adults in the U.S. have high blood pressure, meaning this recall could include a great number of Americans. Those who are taking a medication that contains valsartan should contact their doctor or pharmacist immediately.

No one expects they will be adversely affected by a medication that is prescribed by their doctor. They assume the medication is safe and that it will work as expected. When a medication causes adverse effects, it can cause great harm to a patient. A legal professional who specializes in products liability can help their client determine what happened. An attorney understands how serious a medication problem can be. They can investigate the circumstances surrounding the medication problems and get answers for their client. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

A prescription medication recall is a serious occurrence. Patients rely on these medications to help their medical condition and don't expect them to cause even more harm. Drug manufacturers who fail to properly test their medication and make sure they are safe need to be held accountable for their negligence.
