Olympia Pharmacy is recalling 11 lots of seven compounded medications that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said are “out of specification.”
Recalled are Trimix Formulas F-9, T-105, SB-4, Sermorelin, Sincalide, Hydroxocobalamin and NAD, compounded injectables.
The FDA said the compounded drugs in question “are typically prescribed by medical professionals for age management, erectile dysfunction, vitamin deficiencies, and for diagnostic imaging of the gallbladder.”
In addition, the FDA said, “Administration of subpotent Hydroxocobalamin in infants, pregnant/breastfeeding women, and elderly populations are at risk for vitamin B12 deficiency and there is a reasonable probability they could experience adverse events including muscle weakness, neurological peripheral neuropathic numbness or pain, vision loss, and psychiatric disorders (depression, memory loss).
Additionally, injectable compounded products, found to contain more or less drug product than the labeled strength or which reconstitute at a different rate than intended, may result in either too much or too little medication being administered. This could result in lower-than-expected effectiveness of the drug or unintended adverse side effects.”
There have been no reports of “adverse events.”
