Oversized Warfarin Tablets Recalled On Bleeding Risk

Jun 13, 2013

Oversized tablets have prompted a recall on a specific Lot of warfarin. A patient who takes these oversized pills could suffer a serious bleeding reaction as well as additional injuries or death.

According to Zydus Pharmaceuticals’ recall statement, the recall action is specific to a Lot of Warfarin 2mg tablets. The recalled Lot number is MM5767. One customer at the retail level reported the oversized tablets.

Zydus says that taking an oversized warfarin tablet could cause a serious bleeding side effect. If more than a single oversized pill is taken, the risk of serious bleeding is magnified. To date, the drug maker says it has not received any reports of adverse events linked to accidentally ingesting an oversized tablet.

Taking too much warfarin could lead to severe bleeding, and sometimes that bleeding could impact a major organ or the central nervous system. In those cases, the bleeding episodes could be fatal.

Although patients taking the drug may have received the drug in smaller bottles, the tablets were distributed to pharmacies in HDPE bottles of one-thousand count. The drug was shipped to wholesalers and distributors, retailers, and through mail order services between November and December of last year. These recalled products can be identified by the NDC #6838205310.
