ALERT! Do You Take Blood Pressure Meds?

You may think that the following drug recall alert has nothing to do with fibromyalgia but you'd be missing an important variable. The reason is that this recall alert involves an endocrine disruptor. Also, I've read thousands of comments you all sent me mentioning high blood pressure as a co-condition. Consequently, I felt I really needed to publish this alert to make sure you were knowledgeable of this drug recall.

The FDA has found that some popular BP medications manufactured in China contain a known carcinogin, NDMA (N-nitrosodimethylamine), which has been shown in lab studies to cause cancer of the liver in humans. The common medical name of the med is valsartan or valsartan hydrochlorothiazide tablets.

You should know that not all valsartan products contain NDMA; only the ones manufactured by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals, Linhai, China are involved.

Things become more confusing when you learn that a fair number of drug companies have marketed the affected products. However, the FDA has set up their website so that the consumer can compare their prescription bottle to the FDA's list of drugs that are both affected and not affected. If yours is affected, you may consult with your pharmacist to find a source that can provide valsartan that is not affected.

I love my followers, and I don’t want NDMA messing with your liver; you’ve got your hands full dealing with fibro and you don’t need a contaminated BP med (an endocrine disruptor) making things worse.

Since you’re already on this subject, you might want to continue reading my "endocrine_disruptors" article on this website; click on the link just below.
