Anti-nausea medication recalled

FDA is advising veterinarians and pet owners of a voluntary recall on one lot of Aurobindo Pharma mirtazapine tablets

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting animal professionals about a recall on a drug commonly used to treat nausea and vomiting in cats.

Aurobindo Pharma USA, Inc., is voluntarily recalling lot number 03119002A3 of its mirtazapine tablets due to a label error on declared strength.

Bottles labeled as “Mirtazapine 7.5 mg” may contain 15 mg tablets, FDA says.

Inadvertently issuing a higher dose of the drug than expected may increase the risk of many side effects, including sedation, agitation, increased reflexes, tremors, sweating, dilated pupils, gastrointestinal distress, nausea, and constipation.

The company is notifying its distributors of the recall by letter. Distributors/retailers that have the product are advised to return it to the place of purchase.
