Walgreens Sends Urgent Drug Recall Information Letter Out to Ethex Morphine Sulfate Prescription Customers

Comments Off

Ethex Corporation has been recalling (four times in the past year to be exact) several of its prescription drug products, due to some of the tablets being oversized (upwards of twice the appropriate level of the active ingredient).

Below is the content of Walgreens’ recall letter per Ethex’s Morphine Sulfate oversized tablets:

The manufacturer of Morphine Sulfate IR tables, Ethex Corp., is recalling several lots of this medication because there is the possibility that some tablets may be oversized and may contain more than the appropriate level of active ingredient. Your prescription may have included product from one of these affected lots.

We do not recommend that you discontinue taking Morphine Sulfate IR tablets without speaking to your physician. We ask that you attempt to contact your physician or other health care provider and share this information with them. You may return any remaining Morphine Sulfate tablets to your local Walgreens pharmacy for a refund. If you have any questions about this recall, you may contact the manufacturer at 1-800-748-1772 from Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. C.S.T or via e-mail at customer-service@ethex.com.
