Pharmacy Alert Memo
This memo is to help patients understand which medications are safe to take in light of the recent drug manufacturer recalls for the medication Losartan which can be used to help lower a patient blood pressure.
Over the past year there has been a few voluntary medication recalls based on information that there could be impurities in some of drugs being manufactured. These recalls DO NOT affect any of the medications that have been given or dispensed from San Carlos Apache Healthcare Corporation.
The medications that were included in the recall include certain Losartan and Valsartan-containing products from the manufactures Mylan, Torrent Pharma, Legacy, Macleods, GSMS Inc., Heritage, and Camber Pharmaceuticals Inc. More information can be found at the FDA’s website pertaining to which specific lot numbers have been recalled. (https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/default.htm) However, San Carlos and Bylas Pharmacies HAVE NOT given out any of the recalled medication and patients should continue to take their current and future medications as prescribed by their providers.
