1/25/2024 - Zenzedi® (dextroamphetamine sulfate) Tablets - Azurity

Azurity Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Zenzedi® (dextroamphetamine sulfate) Tablets 30 mg Due to a Mislabeled Package

About this recall:

Azurity is voluntarily recalling 1 lot of Zenzedi® (dextroamphetamine sulfate tablets) 30 mg to the consumer level. The product is being recalled due to a report from a pharmacist who opened a bottle of Zenzedi® 30 mg tablets and found tablets of carbinoxamine maleate, an antihistamine drug. The recalled drug is NDC # 24338-856-03 with lot # F230169A and expiration date June 2025.

Zenzedi® is a prescription medicine FDA-approved for (1) the treatment of narcolepsy and (2) as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The press release linked on the following page provides a description of the appearance of Zenzedi 30 mg tablets and a description of the appearance of carbinoxamine maleate tablets.

What this means to you:

Patients who take carbinoxamine instead of Zenzedi® will experience undertreatment of their symptoms, which may result in impairment and an increased risk of accidents or injury. Patients who consume carbinoxamine could experience side effects such as drowsiness, sleepiness, central nervous system depression, increased eye pressure, enlarged prostate leading to urinary obstruction, and thyroid disorders. For patients with ADHD and narcolepsy, the potential exists for accidents or injuries to occur due to the sedating effects of carbinoxamine. These accidents or injuries could be serious and result in disability or death in severe cases, especially if individuals engage in activities requiring significant focus and alertness, such as driving or operating heavy machinery. To date, Azurity has not received any reports of serious adverse events related to this recall.

Consumers that have product which is being recalled should stop using and return to the place of purchase. Consumers should contact their healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking this recalled drug. An adverse event may also be reported to Azurity via email at aereports@azurity.com.

12/18/2023 - Vigabatrin for Oral Solution - Invagen

About this recall:

Invagen is voluntarily recalling 1 lot of Vigabatrin for Oral Solution, USP 500 mg to the consumer level (NDC 69097-0964-53; lot NB301030; expiry 03/2025). Vigabatrin for Oral Solution, USP 500 mg has been found to have issues with the seal of the foil pouch allowing for powder leakage from the pouch. This medication is packaged in foil pouches, each containing 500 mg of Vigabatrin.

The product is used for the treatment of refractory complex partial seizures as add-on therapy in patients 2 years of age and older who have not responded adequately to several alternative treatments.

What this means to you:

If the seal on the pouch is not working, it may lead to the leakage of powder outside the pouch. This results in a lower amount of medicine inside the pouch and the potential for underdosing of the drug. The population at risk is primarily infants and young children. In those patients, the potential exists that inaccurate dosing might result in a serious adverse event (for example: breakthrough seizures) requiring medical assistance.

Invagen is coordinating the return of all recalled products. Consumers in possession of recalled Vigabatrin for Oral Solution, USP 500 mg are instructed to return the recalled drug to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact Cipla by phone number 844-CIPLAUS (844-247-5287) Monday to Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM EST, or email cipla.cs@cipla.com.

About this recall:

Insight is voluntarily recalling 2 lots of Ting® 2% Miconazole Nitrate Athlete’s Foot Spray Antifungal Spray Powder to the consumer level. A recent review found that samples from 2 lots of the product contained elevated levels of benzene due to the propellant that sprays the product out of the can. Benzene is not an ingredient in any Ting® Antifungal Spray products. The recalled lots of Ting® have an NDC of 63736-532-05 and are identified as lot# 0H88645 (expiration: July 31, 2024) and lot# 0B88345 (expiration: February 29, 2024).

Ting® 2% Miconazole Nitrate Athlete’s Foot Spray is available over-the-counter (OTC) and is effective in the treatment of most athlete’s foot, jock itch, and ringworm. It also relieves itching, scaling, burning, and discomfort that can accompany athlete’s foot and jock itch.

What this means to you:

Benzene is found throughout the environment; however, it is classified as a substance that could increase your risk for cancer. Exposure to benzene can occur by the lungs, the mouth, or through the skin. Benzene could potentially increase the risk for leukemia, bone marrow cancer, and blood disorders which can be life threatening. Humans have daily exposures to benzene both indoors and outdoors from multiple sources. Insight is recalling these products out of an abundance of caution. To date, no serious adverse events related to this recall have been reported to Insight.

Insight will offer reimbursement for consumers who have purchased a recalled lot. Product is packaged in green and white aerosol cans with lot numbers listed on the bottom of the can.

11/27/2023 - Sandimmune Oral Solution - Novartis

Date: 11/27/2023

About this recall:

Novartis is conducting a voluntary nationwide recall at the consumer level of 2 lots of its Sandimmune® Oral Solution (cyclosporine oral solution, USP), 100 mg/mL in the United States (US) due to crystal formation observed in some bottles. Crystallization could potentially result in incorrect dosing. The issue was identified during an investigation of crystallization in a different lot of Sandimmune® Oral Solution (cyclosporine oral solution, USP), 100 mg/mL. No other Sandimmune formulations are impacted.

For lot recalls, the lot/batch information and expiration date for the recalled product can be viewed by clicking on the link to the FDA Recall Notification found below. The recalled lots of Sandimmune® Oral Solution has an DNC of 0078-0110-22 and is identified as lot# FX 001500 with an expiration of 9/30/2024 and lot# FC001582 with an expiration date of 9/30/2024.

Sandimmune® Oral Solution (cyclosporine oral solution, USP), 100 mg/mL, packaged in 50 mL bottles, is indicated for the prophylaxis of organ rejection in kidney, liver, and heart allogeneic transplants. The drug may also be used in the treatment of chronic rejection in patients previously treated with other immunosuppressive agents.

What this means to you:

Crystallization of cyclosporine in Sandimmune Oral Solution is likely to result in non-uniform distribution of the cyclosporine in the product, resulting in under-dosing or over-dosing. There is a reasonable probability that under-dosing may result in lower exposures and decrease in efficacy which could ultimately lead to graft rejection and graft loss in transplant patients. Furthermore, over-dosage may manifest itself as cyclosporine toxicity in the long term if overexposure continues.

Novartis is notifying its distributors via a recall notification letter and is arranging for return of the recalled lot from distributors, retailers, and consumers. Additionally, Novartis is notifying health care providers who have prescribed this product to contact their patients. Consumers that have bottles from the recalled lot of Sandimmune Oral Solution (cyclosporine oral solution, USP), 100mg/mL, should contact their health care provider.

Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail, or by fax.

  • Complete and submit the report Online.

11/21/2023 - Vitrakvi® Oral Solution 20 mg/mL - Bayer

Date: 11/21/2023

About this recall:

Bayer is voluntarily recalling 1 lot of Vitrakvi® (larotrectinib) oral solution 20 mg/mL in 100 mL glass bottles to the consumer/user level. The recall is due to contamination that was found during testing of the product. Contamination was from the fungus Penicillium brevicompactum. The recalled lot of Vitrakvi has an NDC of 50419-0392-01 and is identified as lot# 2114228 with an expiration date of February 29, 2024.

Vitrakvi is FDA-approved for the treatment of solid tumors that are NTRK gene fusion positive. Therefore, it is expected that patients receiving this medication may have a suppressed immune system.

What this means to you:

Cases of severe disease caused by similar fungus species to Penicillium brevicompactum have occurred, especially in patients whose immune systems are suppressed. Therefore, the potential exists that ingestion of Penicillium brevicompactum in patients with underlying immune system suppression could result in serious fungal infections of the blood or pneumonia that can be life-threatening.

Consumers who have the recalled Vitrakvi product should immediately stop use of this particular lot and contact their healthcare provider if they have any questions, concerns, or have experienced any problems related to the recalled drug.

The recall is to the consumer level for all lots within expiry (expiration dates: Nov. 2023 to Sept. 2025) for all of the listed products.

10/03/2023 Betaxolol by KVK-Tech

KVK-Tech, Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of One Lot of Betaxolol Tablets, USP 10 mg as a Precautionary Measure Due to a Single Foreign Tablet Found During the Line Clearance After the Batch was Packaged

Date: 10/3/2023


At Magellan Rx Management, we want to help you receive the best possible care. Visit our drug recall site for details: https://www1.magellanrx.com/drug-recalls/.

About this recall:
KVK-Tech is voluntarily recalling 1 lot of Betaxolol Tablets, USP 10 mg, White, Round, film coated biconvex tablets, debossed “K” above bisect “13” on one side and plain on the other side” to the consumer level. The batch was distributed nationwide to wholesalers and retailers. The batch is being recalled as a precautionary measure due to a single Oxycodone HCl tablet 5 mg foreign tablet found on the packaging line during the line clearance after the subject batch was packaged.

For lot recalls, the lot/batch information and expiration date for the recalled product can be viewed by clicking on the link to the FDA Recall Notification found below.

Betaxolol tablets are used for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure).

What this means to you:
The betaxolol package insert warns about slowing in the heart rate in elderly patients which is likely to be exacerbated by inadvertent opioid administration. Additionally, some patients prescribed low-dose betaxolol might be have compromised heart and lung function that is also likely to be exacerbated by an opioid. Furthermore, there are minor differences in appearance between betaxolol 10 mg tablets and oxycodone 5 mg tablets, not likely to be noticed by a regular user of the 10 mg betaxolol tablet. Specific patient populations such as those with opioid use disorder (OUD) or at risk of OUD, infants, children, and the elderly are likely to be negatively affected by inadvertently receiving an opioid, especially if a substantial number of oxycodone tablets have been introduced into a bottle labeled as betaxolol. Therefore, inadvertent exposure to a controlled substance, such as oxycodone, in that patient population is likely to result in significant slowing in breathing, known as respiratory depression, which is a serious health risk

recall information.

The Harvard Drug Group has posted a lot recall of Dronabinol Capsules 2.5mg and Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules
20mg.

About this recall:
The Harvard Drug Group is initiating a voluntary recall of a single lot of Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg and Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules, 20 mg to the consumer level. The Harvard Drug Group received a customer
complaint from a distributor, that some unit dose cartons labeled as Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules, 20 mg were found to contain blister packages labeled as and containing Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg for Lot T04769. Accordingly, The Harvard Drug Group is recalling all of Lot T04769, Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg, which may be in outer cartons that read Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg OR Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules, 20 mg.

For lot recalls, the lot/batch information and expiration date for the recalled product can be viewed by clicking on the link to the FDA Recall Notification found below.

Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules, 20 mg, is used for the treatment of schizophrenia, as monotherapy for the acute treatment of bipolar manic or mixed episodes, and as an adjunct to lithium or valproate for the maintenance treatment of bipolar disorder.

Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg, is used as: (1) an anorexia associated with weight loss in patients with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), and (2) nausea and vomiting associated with cancer chemotherapy in patients who have failed to respond adequately to conventional antiemetic treatments.

What this means to you:
There is a reasonable probability that patients who mistakenly take Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg instead of Ziprasidone Hydrochloride, 20 mg capsules, can experience serious adverse events from 1) missing their
ziprasidone dose and 2) taking an unexpected dose of Dronabinol. Patients missing doses of Ziprasidone can experience exacerbation of underlying health issues such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, agitation,
aggression, or delirium. This can result in mental illness instability with possible consequences of self‐harm or harm to others which could result in medical or psychiatric hospitalization. Taking an unexpected dose of Dronabinol may cause mental and cognitive effects that result in impairment of mental and/or physical abilities. This can include worsening of symptoms in patients with mental illness disorders and limitation of patients’ abilities to safely complete hazardous activities (e.g., driving a motor vehicle, operating machinery).

Elderly patients or those taking other medications that affect mental function may be particularly at risk for these reactions. The Harvard Drug Group has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
