Valsartan | Blood Pressure Medication Recall

Valsartan Recall

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recalled a number of prescription blood pressure medications because they may cause cancer. As a result, several companies have pulled medicines containing Valsartan off pharmacy shelves.

Valsartan is a generic drug used to treat high blood pressure.  Officials with the FDA discovered an impurity in the drug, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), which is listed as a probably human carcinogen (it’s a substance that could cause cancer).

What Valsartan Drugs Have Been Recalled?

The July 2018 recall of blood pressure medications included the following medicines:

ValsartanMajor Pharmaceuticals
ValsartanSolco Healthcare
ValsartanTeva Pharmaceuticals
Valsartan/Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ)Solco Healthcare

Potential Valsartan side-effects are not limited to cancer.  Other serious side effects may include swelling, skin rash, fainting, and chest pain.
