Recall: Generic Toprol XL (Metoprolol Succinate)

by Elizabeth Davis on June 20, 2014 at 10:20 am

Generic manufacturer Dr. Reddy’s is recalling two lots (about 13,560 bottles) of blood pressure med metoprolol ER (metoprolol succinate, or generic Toprol XL). The recall includes only the 25 mg tablet, 100-count bottle.

The recall was initiated because the drug failed a dissolution test, used to show that the active ingredient in the medication will be released consistently, and have the same effect in every batch.

The lots being recalled are C206578  (expiration date 05/14) and C207415 (expiration date 06/14), with NDC 55111-466-01. The manufacturer/labeler is Dr. Reddy’s. Only the 25 mg metoprolol succinate tablets are affected. If your packaging label has a different strength, NDC, or manufacturer, it is not affected by the recall.

The recall was started by the manufacturer at the end of May 2014, and posted by the FDA on June 19, 2014. The recall is at the pharmacy level, so your pharmacy will be returning any affected medication, but it is considered safe for you to continue taking your prescription if you have some metoprolol from the affected lots. If you have any questions or concerns, contact your pharmacist or your doctor.

For the details on the current recall, you can find the FDA enforcement report here.
