Sinister reasons for valsartan side effects?
Like all drugs, there can be inherent complications. However, there could be more sinister reasons behind certain valsartan side effects people may suffer from.
There’s been a huge Europe-wide recall of the blood pressure drug last year, which we covered last year. This stems from a potential contamination issue in the manufacturing process. As a result, valsartan that’s supplied by Actavis Group PTC (now Accord) and Dexcel Pharma Ltd is now subject to a recall.
The potential contamination issue could be incredibly serous for anyone that’s affected by it. In America, there are already class actions and group cases for people who have taken the drug. Our lawyers want to hear from anyone in the UK who has suffered problems.
More about the recall and valsartan side effects
Last year, a Class 1 Medicines Recall was initiated by the MHRA (Medicines and healthcare products Regulatory Agency). This relates to potential NDMA contamination which may lead to valsartan side effects that are beyond what’s already known and accepted.
NDMA (nitrosodimethylamine) can be both carcinogenic and genotoxic. Respectively, that means that people may be at risk of cancer or damage to cells. As such, this is a very serious issue.
Are you suffering with valsartan side effects?
If you’re using – or have used – the drug, and you’ve experienced valsartan side effects that are beyond what may have been expected, we want to hear from you.
First and foremost, always seek urgent medication attention if you’re suffering problems. Follow the official advice that’s been distributed in relation to the recall, and follow the advice given by healthcare professionals.
