Popular Medications Recalled

Swiss drugmaker Novartis is recalling all lots of Excedrin Extra Strength Caplets and Excedrin Tension Headache caplets with expiration dates of December 20, 2014 or earlier. The medication is being recalled because of possible chipped or broken tablets and stray pills of other drugs.

The chipped and broken pills could cause consumers to take too much or too little of the medication, and the unwanted pills could cause unexpected drug interactions or other side effects.

The company is also recalling some bottles of Excedrin, NoDoz, Bufferin and Gas-X because of the same problems. This is a voluntary recall and there haven’t been any reported adverse affects related to the damaged product.

Teething Tablet Recall

Hylands has voluntarily recalled their homeopathic Teething Tablet. According to their website, this is following “an abundance of caution after the company and the FDA conducted a thorough review of the company’s adverse event reports and manufacturing processes. Together, we have identified manufacturing processes of Teething Tablets that can be improved to ensure uniformity in dosage. We also believe there are opportunities to refine the production, packaging and testing protocols on this product.”

Personally, I used Hylands Teething Tablets and Boiron Camilia for my son’s teething pain, instead of acetaminophen or ibuprofen, and had great success. If you want a natural alternative to Hylands, Boiron’s product is an option, as is Hyland’s Teething Gel, which has not been affected by the recall.
