Immediate Recall by Mylan Pharmaceuticals: Potential Serious Risk due to Mislabelling of Products

Advisory
2011-43
March 17, 2011
For immediate release

The issue

Following a complaint by a pharmacist regarding a prescription product containing the wrong medication, Mylan Pharmaceuticals has begun a voluntary recall of one lot (1037180) of MYLAN-MINOCYCLINE 50mg capsules, (bottles of 100) and MYLAN-AMLODIPINE 5mg tablets, (bottles of 100).

The risk to a patient, who is sensitive or allergic to tetracyclines or minocycline, and is taking MYLAN-AMLODIPINE to treat their high blood pressure or angina, but is now using MYLAN-MINOCYCLINE due to a labelling error, can be life-threatening. In addition, a patient who requires MYLAN-AMLODIPINE for their high blood pressure or angina will not get the medication needed to help them treat these conditions.

The company is advising pharmacists and wholesalers to return all quantities of the lot (1037180) to Mylan Pharmaceuticals.

Who is affected

Canadians with high blood pressure, angina, or allergies to tetracyclines or minocycline.
