The Finnell Firm

What causes a drug impurity?

There have been several recalls of blood pressure medications following the discovery of chemicals within them that are known carcinogens, that is, chemicals which increase the risk of cancer. Medicinal drugs are, albeit on a much grander scale, made in the same way that one may have performed chemical experiments in high school science class. In other words, the active ingredient in a drug is the result of a chemical reaction in which chemists and their assistants use existing molecules to create helpful medicine.

Recalls of blood pressure meds continue to expand

The last few weeks have seen a rash of additional recalls of the blood pressure medicine Valsartan, with three separate recalls happening in one week. Lest one think that multiple recalls in a week are just an anomaly, there were two others in the week before or after.
