Pharmaceutical company voluntarily recalled a medicine for infants.
(KUSI) – A pharmaceutical company has voluntarily recalled a medicine for infants.
The maker of the store brands of infant ibuprofen from Walmart, CVS and Family Dollar is voluntarily recalling three lots of the meds.
The over-the-counter liquid pain reliever and fever reducer is meant for infants who are between the ages of 6 months and 23 months old. Adverse events from the medication may include nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal pain, diarrhea, gastrointestinal pain, ringing in the ears and headache, although no adverse events related to the recalled ibuprofen have been reported, according to Tris Pharma.
“There is a remote possibility that infants, who may be more susceptible to a higher potency level of drug, and therefore may be more vulnerable to permanent NSAID-associated renal injury,” the recall announcement said.
The recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
