What does this mean?

If your furosemide prescription is labeled with the manufacturer Sandoz, Inc and the NDC number 0781-1966-10, it may be involved in the recall if it was from lot 180974. The manufacturer and NDC number is often listed on the prescription label. Unfortunately, the lot number is typically not listed on the prescription label. If you are taking furosemide and think your tablets are involved in the recall, or if you are unsure, take your bottle to your pharmacy for your pharmacist to check. Most pharmacies will provide you with replacement medicine if your medicine is involved in the recall.

At this time, this recall has not been associated with any health problems. If you are using medicine covered by this recall you should continue to take it as directed until you speak with your pharmacist - suddenly stopping your medicine may place you at a greater risk for problems. If you have any questions or concerns about furosemide or the information in this alert, please follow up with your doctor or pharmacist.
