Mylan Recall Painkiller Pills Due to Risk
Mylan, an American generic pharmaceutical company with a branch out here in New Zealand, recently recalled three types of painkiller tablets due to the risk that the tablets are more potent than the label indicates.
Mylan announce the recall here whilst the American drugs regulator, the FDA, announce it here.
In mid December last year Mylan New Zealand admitted to a bereaved mother that their antidepressant, Fluox, was the probable cause of her son's suicide. Safe to say then that the Fluox tablets were more potent than the label indicated.
There was no public announcement via their web page or by the New Zealand drugs regulator, Medsafe.
Just making a comparison folks.
