Medicines watchdog recalls drugs made in India !

The UK's medicines watchdog is recalling 16 prescription medicines made at an Indian factory which failed a routine inspection. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency wants pharmacies to return stock of the drugs made by Wockhardt at its Waluj site. The recalled drugs include some for diabetes, schizophrenia and thyroid conditions. But the MHRA stresses there is no evidence of a risk to patient safety.

Some of the drugs include Metformin, taken by people with Type 2 diabetes; Atenolol, used to treat high blood pressure and angina; Pramipexole for Parkinson's disease; Risperidone for schizophrenia and Clopidogrel for blood clots.
