Losartan recall

Posted by @techi, Fri, Nov 30 9:37pm

Today a second recall on a high blood pressure med my doctor has prescribed in a year. What does that tell you about our healthcare. And a med l was taken off at the mayo clinic because l shouldn't be taken. It would help me. And my cardiologist is trouble, my pcp has retired recently and his replacement doctor doesn't want to touch my case because he knows they messed me up. And l am the one with anxiety and depression. No l am hot. And as soon as l got off of valsartan and was put on losartan l thought something was going to go wrong. Patients dont need meds we need Jesus. All these drugs are killing us and our medical system is getting rich at our expense. And when we stand up the want us to stay quiet. And the mayo clinic ruled out Angina and cardiomegley a year ago. And when l was admitted this year for bradycardia this year it was still on my chart. And the cardiologist that put it on in the first place just got out of jail. I love my state healthcare.

Lisa,

Would you please link the information pertaining to the Losartin recall? It is the one I take and if there is a recall I need to know. It is the one I currently take.

Lisa,

The recall is for the product made by Sandoz.

I'm very happy that you posted the info about the recall. It made me go look at my bottles of Losartin. The pharmacy made an error. no I will go back and see them tomorrow. They gave me a bottle of 50Mg and one of 25Mg. It was supposed to be 2 bottles of 25 Mg. I guess errors occur.

Thanks for your post. I did find the information about the recall and I sure don't want to take the one by Sandoz. It has a carcinogen included in the contents used to manufacture the med in the town company and it is manufactured in China.

lioness,

My pharmacist told me they do not buy that bad brand. They did make a mistake when they filled my prescription. Doc ordered it changed from 1X 50Mg to 2X 25Mg so I take it AM & PM. Doofus persons gave me a bottle of 25Mg and one bottle of 50Mg. Good thing the alert was posted by one of our members about her Losartin being recalled. Caused me to go look for the bad manufacturer and doing so I caught a near fatal error. I could have accidently taken 50Mg 2X daily and that would have possible caused such a drop in my BP I might not be here to post.

Pharmacy took bak the 50Mg, issued a second bottle of 25Mg and she sent the notice of their error to CVS. Then she told me my cardiologist would be notified. I sent him a heads-up email this AM so he is aware of the situation.

I've used them for meds almost the entire 25 years I've lived here and NEVER have they made any kind of error on my meds. They admitted it was their error, but, by golly, this is not good. They hand you your meds in a white bag, for discreteness I think, and unless you insist on opening the bag before leaving the counter you might get a surprise later that day.

All I got to say is Caveat Emptor!!!!

Have a good day and today, was not as the Klingons say, "a good day to die"! It is a day to rejoice in life again.

I am sorry l didn't reply. My life is a little crazy but l am glad you found out which one. I am getting off mines for good. I have someone who is a naturalist and she told me l don't take meds and she hates doctors. She said they almost killed her three years ago. And she had doctors in her family her daughter is going to be a doctor but she said shes not giving drugs. And l know right now our world is full of hate. All our countries are angry that l don't trust any medicines right now. So this is me and l think it's going to be a blessing because there was no proof that it was helping me anyway . A you start taking one med and then theres a recall and you take another one and then something else happens. So l am just going to go back to the old remedies it works and you didn't need prescriptions or did l have side effects. We are killing ourselves and we will have to go back to growing our own foods and cooking ourselves. They can take away healthcare funding it's only killing us anyway. And the government and companies are getting rich. I really think it will be a blessing because we will turn to God and he cannot fail you.

lioness,

Maybe the nitro patch might help, but I'm wondering what it can do for PVC prevention. Doc told me since my HR is low it allows stray PVCs. But, to tell the truth, I get them even when my HR is not low, when it is above 60 and I still occasionally feel them. They are not benign as has been thought in the past, but actually cause the heart to have to work harder when the left ventricle is extra full with the blood it would have pumped in the last "normal" beat that became a PVC with very little being pumped out.

Other than Hawthorn, and hibiscus to help along with Vitamin B and CoQ10, what other natural products are there that can help?

techi,

I visit a naturopath and that is where I learned about Hawthorne which is used worldwide for heart problems. The rest of the supplements I take are what I learned about online.

@eileena After my by pass this is what I used Hawthorne

I still use it. need to get more today and I use also D-Ribose as the heart IS a muscle and needs this 5 sided sugar which does not affect the glucose levels.

@eileena thanks for the tip on D-Ribose I,ll add that to I use CoQ ,10 also for cholesterol med

Are you sure about sandoz?

Hi,
Here’s some information from the FDA about the Losartan recall:

Sandoz Inc. Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of One Lot of Losartan Potassium and Hydrochlorothiazide Due to the Detection of Trace Amounts of NDEA (N-Nitrosodiethylamine) Impurity Found in the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API): https://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm625492.htm

This drug is used alone
Losartan (Cozaar) https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/losartan-oral-route/description/drg-20067341
Or together with other medicines to treat high blood pressure
Losartan and hydrochlorothiazide (Hyzaar) https://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/losartan-and-hydrochlorothiazide-oral-route/description/drg-20062877

I’d also like to emphasize that the FDA article states: “Patients who are currently taking this medication are advised to speak with their doctor before stopping use, because the risk of going off of the medication might be greater than other possible risk. Patients who are on Losartan Potassium Hydrochlorothiazide should continue taking their medication, as the risk of harm to a patient’s health may be higher if the treatment is stopped immediately without any alternative treatment.”

Hi Lisa @techi,

Mayo Clinic advises that people consult with their current care provider before making any changes to their existing medication or treatment plan.
When considering complementary or alternative treatments, be open-minded yet skeptical. Learn about the potential benefits and risks.
Herbal supplements can have strong effects in the body. Some can interact with prescription medications used to treat heart and circulatory problems, such as high blood pressure and heart failure. Some of these interactions can even be dangerous.

I sincerely encourage you and others in this conversation to view this important Mayo Clinic article about
Herbal supplements and heart medicines may not mix https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/consumer-health/in-depth/herbal-supplements/art-20046488
