Popular Medications Recalled

Swiss drugmaker Novartis is recalling all lots of Excedrin Extra Strength Caplets and Excedrin Tension Headache caplets with expiration dates of December 20, 2014 or earlier. The medication is being recalled because of possible chipped or broken tablets and stray pills of other drugs.

The chipped and broken pills could cause consumers to take too much or too little of the medication, and the unwanted pills could cause unexpected drug interactions or other side effects.

The company is also recalling some bottles of Excedrin, NoDoz, Bufferin and Gas-X because of the same problems. This is a voluntary recall and there haven’t been any reported adverse affects related to the damaged product.
