FDA announces voluntary recall of several medicines containing valsartan
Your health is important to us. Please be aware of a recent FDA medication recall and talk to your pharmacy with questions.
You can read the complete recall alert at: https://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/UCM613532.htm
Here are recommendations from the Texas Heart and Vascular team:
- First, please verify with your pharmacy that your particular batch they dispensed to you is actually recalled. Only the dispensing pharmacy can tell you that.
- If it has been recalled, ask your pharmacy if they can dispense an alternate Valsartan that is not in the recall. Some pharmacies now have non-recalled Valsartan in stock that they can dispense.
- If your pharmacy cannot provide another Valsartan, please contact our clinical team by sending us a message on MyChart at https://mychart.stdavids.com/MyChart or calling our office at (512) 623-5300.
