3 Indian Drugs Recalled in the United States

Patients who go to their doctors for medical attention expect that they will get treated properly, and receive prescriptions for medications that will help them, not hurt them. According to a recent Healthworld article, three different drugs are being recalled, which could put many patients’ health in jeopardy.

1. Ondansetron HCI API – This drug is being recalled because of the risk of contamination of a non-sterile product.

2. Travoprost Ophthalmic Solution – This drug is being recalled because of a lack of sterility and because of the fact that the internal packaging has been damaged.

3. Metformin Hydrochloride Tablets – Foreign tablets and capsules have been found inside the packaging.

All three of these medications were manufactured in India and adverse health reactions can occur for patients who take or use them.

Being exposed to a different drug than you thought you were prescribed, or taking a contaminated medication can have profound health consequences for you and your loved ones. However, people often don’t realize that there is action they can take if something like this occurs.
