RECALL NOTICE - Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets

Steve Wagner

Unichem Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for one lot of their Hydrochlorothiazide Tablets, specifically the 25 mg. 1000-count bottles. These bottles were packaged and shipped across the country, and then a Clopidogrel tablet was discovered in one of the bottles.

It is unknown how many Clopidogrel tablets mistakenly ended up in the bottles of the Hydrochlorothiazide, but the risks to patients mistakenly taking the Clopidogrel tablets could be deadly.

The side effects for Clopidogrel include bleeding and bruising, which could have an adverse effect to the intended results of the Hydrochlorothiazide. The Hydrochlorothiazide tablets are intended to benefit those with congestive heart failure, cirrhosis of the liver, and kidney disorders. The pill assists in the prevention of salt absorption, which can cause fluid retention.

Clopidogrel can cause uncontrolled blood pressure, which often results in swelling and excess fluid retention, or edema.

In order to avoid further injury to consumers, Unichem has recalled this entire lot. If you have this product in your possession, please call the manufacturer immediately. You can contact Unichem Pharmaceuticals (USA), Inc. by e-mail regaffairs@unichemusa.com or call customer service at: 1-866-931-0704, Monday through Friday 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM EST.

Most importantly, contact your doctor immediately. If you are going to discontinue taking this recalled product, you will need a replacement drug. Don’t wait.
