Note a recall of medication Pradaxa(r)

November 19, 2012

The manufacturer of the prescription medication Pradaxa(r) is voluntarily recalling all patient-level lots of 75mg dosage of the medication.

The reason is a potential packaging defect that the manufacturer says may compromise the integrity of the bottle and permit moisture to enter and impair the effective dose.

If you have the 75 mg. dose of Pradaxa (r), you should contact your Medco/Express Scripts pharmacy for further instructions on return/replacement.

Medco customers who have been prescribed that medication by their physicians also will be receiving a letter from Medco/Express Scripts.
