When the FDA announced the recall of popular blood pressure medications last month, there was some serious alarm.
With the expanded recall, that alarm is sounding louder and louder today as millions are left scrambling for an alternative to the medication they were taking.
Initially, the FDA recalled the generic version of Valsartan because of the raw ingredients. However, that recall has been expanded to include combinations of drugs using Valsartan.
Quality control became an issue for multiple companies because many of the companies making generics were all using the same source of the raw materials.
If your medication is impacted by the recall, be sure to seek an alternative.
Replacements may act differently for different people.
