My Mood: Pfizer recalling Effexor -- nationwide recall
Default Pfizer recalling Effexor -- nationwide recall

http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm388329.htm

Hi, Pfizer is recalling Effexor.

Quote:
Patients with questions regarding the return of product should contact Stericycle at 1-888-345-0481 (Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm ET). Patients with questions regarding this recall can contact Pfizer Medical Information at 1-800-438-1985 (Monday to Thursday 9am to 8pm ET or Friday, 9am to 5pm ET).

Effexor might have been contaminated with a heart drug -- a bad combination.

Okay even though its Effexor XR,

I think I'm safe. Looks like its a much higher dosage than mine.

Donna,

If you cannot reach Pfizer, your pharmacy would her able to help you.

I understand about the hassle of getting a new 'script.

I forgot mine is the generic for Effexor XR. So this isn't
the one affected correct.
