On-line article discussing Phenobarbital Drug Recall by FDA
AmyHaase posted:
Today in a press release by the American Veterinary Medical Association to veterinary members, at 3:45 this afternoon, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that a large amount of the common anticonvulsant phenobarbital produced by the Qualitest Pharmaceuticals are actually mislabeled acetaminophen and hydrocodone. This is a common drug prescribed for veterinary patients who suffer from seizure disorders such as epilepsy. The company announced a voluntary recall of the Phenobarbital tablets on February 5th, 2011, and the FDA has recently received reports of severe adverse events associated with administration of mislabeled product to pets.
