A third type of medication to treat high blood pressure and / or heart failure, not Valsartan or Losartan, has been withdrawn from the market because of too much of a potentially cancerous ingredient.
A batch of Irbesartan and seven batches of Irbesartan HCTZ, both manufactured in China by Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals, have been withdrawn by the company Prinston Pharmaceuticals, Solco Healthcare. Like the funeral parade of Valsartan and Losartan, which is remembered since July, the amount of N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA) exceeds the FDA's daily standards. The International Agency for Research on Cancer clbadifies the NDEA as a "probable human carcinogen".
The recall notice published by the FDA and published by the FDA advises patients to consult with their doctor or, at least, with their pharmacist about another form of treatment before returning any Irbesartan withdrawn from the market.
