Labeling mix-up recall for blood pressure medicine

Recall for blood pressure medication due to potentially dangerous mixup

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.

Bottles that were supposed to contain the blood pressure medication Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP 12.5 mg contained Spironolactone Tablets USP 25 mg.

Accord Healthcare Inc. voluntarily recalled a single lot of the drug, PW05264, after investigations revealed it was the only lot that was possibly affected.

The hydrochlorothiazide pills are light orange or peach in color, are round, and beget an "H" on one aspect and a "1" on the opposite.

Anyone unsure if the pills in their hydrochlorothiazide bottle are hydrochlorothiazide should take them back to their pharmacist or to a healthcare professional.

According to a report from USA Today, the Food and Drug Administration issued the recall due to mislabeled bottles of Hydrochlorothiazide.

Hydrochlorothiazide tablets are used to manage hypertension either alone or with other antihypertensive drugs.

The effects of mixing up the medications - both help bodies get rid of extra salt and water - depend on the individual but can range from "limited" to "life-threatening", FDA officials said. Hydrochlorothiazide is used to treat hypertension, also known as high blood pressure.

Wholesalers, distributors, and retailers that have the recalled product have been advised to discontinue distribution of the product and notify consumers. Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using this drug product.
