VALSARTAN USERS MAY BE AT RISK FROM RECALL!

AVA Law Group is currently examining cases on behalf of valsartan users who became sick after taking contaminated medication. If you or a loved one has suffered severe health problems from valsartan use, you may be entitled to compensation. FDA officials revealed specific strains of Valsartan, the popular blood pressure medication, were tainted with harmful substances during the manufacturing process.

In July 2018 the FDA recalled several strains of the blood pressure medication valsartan and valsartan HCTZ. Both types of valsartan are hypertension prescriptions, originally sold under then brand name Diovan. Over the years prescription manufactures created generic equivalents to Diovan, the most notable generic valsartan manufacturer being Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals.

In the last few years, valsartan generic manufacturers, primarily China-based Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals, synthesized batches of valsartan using a different manufacturing process. Allegedly, the manufacturing process meant to increase product yield, therefore increasing the company's profit. However, the new process gave up the safeness of valsartan for the quantity of the drug manufacturers could produce.

Unsurprisingly, a deadly byproduct was the result of generic manufacturers' poor choices. FDA investigators uncovered dangerously high levels of  known human carcinogens in specific strains of valsartan, These  carcinogens, N-nitrodimethylamine (NDMA) and N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), appear to be an impurity directly related to the manufacturing process.

NDMA and NDEA have been tied to an increased risk of serious health concerns. The FDA related that the levels of NDMA present in specific strains of valsartan exceed the maximum "safe" daily limit of NDMA as dictated by the EPA.  Health concerns caused by these dangerous carcinogens include and are not limited to the below list of severe side effects.

COMPANIES LINKED TO IMPURE VALSARTAN

Though the FDA reported their findings of valsartan impurities July 13, 2018, evidence suggests that impure batches of valsartan have been distributed for four years at least, dating back to 2014.  Reports traced impure batches to as early as 2014 and linked them to the list of pharmaceutical companies below.

SOLCO HEALTHCARE

TEVA PHARMACEUTICALS INDUSTRIES LTD.

PRINSTON PHARMACEUTICAL INC.

ACTAVIS INC.

WHAT'S NEXT?

The FDA recommends users to continue taking valsartan until they have a replacement and encourages users to contact their health care professional immediately if their strain of valsartan is included in the recall. Although Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals and other generic manufactures have stopped distributing valsartan with the deadly active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), millions of people are at risk for their grave mistake. 

The recall caused a shortage of the drug and an increased price in competitors of valsartan. Reports state that valsartan recalls led to a severe spike in valsartan prices; the price of 160mg and 80mg tablets of generic valsartan more than doubled in September 2018. Victims filing valsartan lawsuits across the U.S.  are not only seeking damages for the cost of recalled drugs, but for medical monitoring for serious health conditions they will need to closely watch for the rest of their lives. 

Innocent dependents on necessary medication should NOT be forced to suffer due to someone’s sacrifice of quality for quantity.
