Pfizer Inc. Effexor XR ® (venlafaxine HCl) Recall

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Pfizer Inc. is voluntarily recalling Greenstone LLC-branded Venlafaxine HC1 150 mg extended-release capsules. A pharmacist had reported that a bottle of Pfizer’s Effexor XR contained one capsule of Tikosyn® (dofetilide) 0.25mg in addition to the Effexor XR capsules. Although Pfizer did not receive any other reports of poor packaging, these three lots are being voluntarily recalled as a precaution because they were packaged on the same line.

The use of Tikosyn by an Effexor XR/Venlafaxine HCl patient, where the contraindications and drug-drug interactions with Tikosyn have not been considered by the prescribing physician, could cause serious adverse health consequences that could be fatal.

Tikosyn is a Class III cardiac antiarrhythmic drug. It is used to treat irregular heartbeats and to maintain normal rhythm.

This recall extends to the patient level and involves Pfizer lot numbers V130142 and V130140, which both expire in October 2015, and Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.

These products were distributed nationally to wholesalers, distributors, certain government agencies, patient assistance programs and retailers, such as pharmacies and hospitals. These direct customers are being notified by UPS next day mail, and Pfizer is arranging for the return of all recalled products.

Pharmacists should immediately quarantine, discontinue distribution of and return all recalled lots of these products, as well as notify any of their customers to whom they distributed the products. Patients with affected product should notify their physicians and/or return product to their pharmacies.
