Safety Alerts & Recalls

What does this mean?

Because the recalled bottles of Endocet 10 mg/325 mg may contain incorrect tablets that have a higher dosage of acetaminophen, it is important for patients to take this recall seriously. Unintended use of tablets with increased acetaminophen may result in liver toxicity, especially in patients taking other acetaminophen containing medications, patients with a history of liver problems, or people who consume more than 3 alcoholic beverages a day.

If you take the brand Endocet 10 mg/325 mg tablets, please check your prescription bottle to make sure you have received the correct tablets. Endocet 10 mg/325 mg tablets are 0.6 inches in length, 0.27 inches in width, and are yellow capsule-shaped tablets, marked "E712" on one side and "10/325" on the other. By contrast, Endocet 10 mg/650 mg tablets are larger (0.7 inches in length, 0.4 inches in width) and are yellow oval-shaped tablets, marked "E797" on one side and "10" on the other.

If you think your medicine is involved in the recall, please take it to your pharmacist to examine and possibly exchange. You can contact Endo's agent Stericycle at 1-866-723-2681 if you have any other questions or need additional help determining if your medicine was involved in the recall.

If you have any other concerns about your medicine or think you are experiencing side effects, please follow up with your doctor or other healthcare provider.

Endo Pharmaceuticals Recalls Endocet Bottles With Wrong Pill Sizes

Endo Pharmaceuticals has issued a consumer level recall of two lots of Endocet 10 mg/325 mg tablets because these lots may contain incorrect tablets that have a higher dose of acetaminophen. Endocet 10 mg/325 mg is a combination product of two medications: oxycodone and acetaminophen. Endocet 10 mg/325 mg lot numbers 402415NV and #402426NV are being recalled because some bottles in these lots were found to contain Endocet 10 mg/650 mg tablets. Accidentally taking tablets with higher amounts of acetaminophen may result in liver toxicity. This voluntary recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

This recall only involves the two lots of Endocet 10 mg/325 mg. Oxycet, Percocet, Roxicet, Roxilox, Tylox, and other generic products of oxycodone/acetaminophen are not involved in this recall.
