Manufacturer Zydus is recalling one lot of their warfarin 2 mg tablets. Some tablets from the lot were found to be oversized, meaning they could deliver a higher dose than intended. With warfarin, this could cause problems with excessive bleeding.
The lot being recalled is MM5767, and it expires June 2014. The NDC number (this will appear on your prescription label) for Zydus’s 2 mg warfarin tablet is 6838-2053-10. If your prescription label has a different number or manufacturer, your tablets are not affected by the recall.
In this case, the recall is on the retail level, meaning that pharmacies are working with the manufacturer to stop distribution and return any tablets from the affected lot.
If you’ve received tablets from the recalled lot, make sure all of your tablets are the same size and check with your dispensing pharmacy if you have any concerns. If you believe you’re experiencing any health issues related to taking warfarin from this lot, contact your doctor or healthcare provider.
You can also call Zydus Pharmaceuticals Drug Safety/Medical Affairs at 1-877-993-8779, Option # 2 with any questions or concerns about the recall.
