Drug recalled over potentially life-threatening label mix-up

RECALL Blood Stress Meds Beget Mistaken Drug

Accord - the company that distributes the drug - is recalling this individual lot from the market due to the "potential mix-up of labeling".

The FDA published a voluntary recall for hypertension medication Hydrochlorothiazide, made by Accord Healthcare.

A 100 count bottle of Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets has been found to containSpironolactone tablets which could result in increased potassium levels that could pose life-threatening situations to some people.

The big story of the draw is one of friends reuniting, with Paul Pogba and Cristiano Ronaldo revisiting their old stomping ground. Only last season, City were drawn in a group alongside Shakhtar Donetsk, and we saw firsthand the quality they possess.


Accord Healthcare has issued a steal for a blood strain medication for the reason that bottles that were shipped in actuality accept as true with a coronary heart failure drug. Hyperkalemia is an unsafe increase in potassium levels. Hydrochlorothiazide treats high blood pressure and fluid retention, says rxlist.com.

A specific lot of the pill bottles is being voluntarily recalled by their manufacturer, Accord Healthcare, because they contain the wrong pills.

Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5-milligram tablets are light orange to peach-colored, round and printed with an H on one side and a 1 on the other.

He told me that he was counting on me and that he would be very happy if he made a decision to return. He needs to leave to fight for minutes.


Medication in that lot is now under a voluntary recall. The recall does not affect hydrochlorothiazide sold by other drug companies.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning of a blood pressure drug labeling mix-up that could have effects ranging from "limited" to "life-threatening", depending on the individual.

The FDA says if you have a hydrochlorothiazide prescription and the pills in your bottle do not match that description, or if you are unsure, return them to your pharmacy or doctor.
