Lawyers Assist Victims of Contaminated Valsartan Blood Pressure Drugs

Attorneys pursue justice in cases involving carcinogenic substances

According to the Food and Drug Administration, approximately 3 million Americans have taken medications containing Valsartan to deal with high blood pressure, congestive heart failure or the aftermath of a heart attack. Last year, several generic versions of the medicine made in China and India were recalled when they were found to be contaminated with carcinogens. There was no way for these patients to foresee adverse health effects, because cancer is not a side effect associated with these drugs. Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban is an aggressive law firm that battles on behalf of clients who have suffered due to tainted blood-pressure medication and other dangerous drugs.

Firm in the Carolinas and Virginias help clients identify harmful medications

In July 2018, the FDA announced a recall of certain Valsartan products that could be traced to Chinese manufacturers Zhejiang Huahais and Zhejiang Tianyu, as well as to Hetero Labs Limited in India. The FDA issued the recall because some lots contained the cancer-causing chemical N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). Two months later, other batches were found to have been tainted by a similar toxic chemical, N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA).

The problems exist in generic Valsartan products made by the following pharmaceutical companies:

  • Teva Pharmaceuticals
  • Mylan
  • Aurobindo Pharma USA
  • Accord Healthcare, Inc.
  • Major Pharmaceuticals
  • Solco Healthcare
  • AvKare
  • A-S Medication Solutions LLC
  • RemedyPack, Inc.
  • Torrent Pharmaceuticals, Limited

The name brand most commonly associated with Valsartan in the United States is Diovan, made by Novartis. So far, no contaminated medications have been traced to their products.

Aggressive advocates take on drug makers whose product has been recalled

Complaints have already been filed in several states against the makers of these dangerous pharmaceuticals. In a free initial consultation, we can review whether you might be eligible for relief.

Valsartan drugs produced by the following manufacturers have been taken off the market:

  • Actavis
  • A-S Medication Solutions LLC
  • Bryant Ranch Prepack Inc.
  • Northwind Pharmaceuticals
  • Prinston Pharmaceuticals’ Solco Healthcare
  • Teva Pharmaceuticals’ Major Pharmaceuticals

Also recalled were drugs containing the hypertension drug Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) made by:

  • Actavis
  • AvKARE
  • A-S Medication Solutions LLC
  • Northwind Pharmaceuticals
  • Prinston Pharmaceuticals’ Solco Healthcare
  • Proficient Rx LP
  • Remedy Repack

Teva Pharmaceuticals recalled amlodipine/Valsartan combination tablets in the United States, in addition to its amlodipine/Valsartan/ hydrochlorothiazide tablets.

No matter which of the medications you or a loved one took, it’s best to keep a bottle of the recalled drug around to identify where and by whom it was made.

Proven litigators work to hold pharmaceutical manufacturers accountable

NDMA in certain doses can be extremely harmful to the liver and even has been used as a poisoning agent. Along with NDEA, it could increase a user’s vulnerability to cancers of the:

  • Liver
  • Kidney
  • Stomach
  • Pancreas
  • Bladder

Getting immediate help could make a huge difference if you’ve taken an unsafe amount of Valsartan. As you receive the necessary medical attention, our lawyers will press for appropriate compensation.
