Safety Alerts & Recalls

What does this mean?

iGuard is currently monitoring safety alerts for Calan tablets, also sold as the generic name verapamil hydrochloride. Although these recalled tablets are not likely to cause any health problems, you should still check your prescription bottle to see if your tablets are labeled "Calan 80 mg tablets" and if they are made by Pfizer. The manufacturer and NDC number is often listed on the pharmacy label of prescription bottles. If you think your tablets are involved in the recall, or if you are not sure who made your tablets, you should return them to your pharmacy to examine and possibly exchange.
