According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a common blood-pressure medication has been recalled after a potentially harmful error on the product label. A detailed article on the recall appears here.
The manufacturer—Accord Healthcare Inc.— voluntarily recalled one lot of Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP 12.5 mg because some bottles may contain a different product. An investigation has revealed only one lot—Lot# PW05264—may potentially be affected.
Doctors frequently prescribe Hydrochlorothiazide to treat high blood pressure. Bottles from the lot in question may contain Spironolactone Tablets USP 25 mg—a drug prescribed for cirrhosis of the liver, congestive heart failure, and other conditions. Confusing these medications could lead to potentially harmful effects.
Identification of Hydrochlorothiazide
Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets USP 12.5 mg manufactured by Accord Healthcare Inc. appear as peach or pale orange in color. The tablets feature the letter “H” on one side and the numeral “1” on the other. The company has released a visual guide to help identify the product.
What to Do
Currently, Accord Healthcare Inc. states there are no reports of adverse incidents stemming from the recall. As a precaution, the FDA recommends people who possess Hydrochlorothiazide tablets manufactured by Accord that do not match the correct description above contact their doctor or pharmacist.
