Everyone is talking drug companies these days. Pfizer just got emergency approval for their COVID vaccine & Moderna is likely too as well any day now.
In other pharma news…
It seems pharmaceutical distributor AvKare is voluntarily recalling 100mg Sildenafil tablets and 100mg Trazodone tablets due to the meds being
“inadvertently packaged together.”
Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra, which is used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction & Trazodone is used to treat major depressive disorder.
According to CNN,
Unintentional consumption of sildenafil can pose serious health risks for those with underlying health issues, such as lowering blood pressure to dangerous levels for those taking prescriptions containing nitrates.
The lots that are being recalled are sildenafil 100 mg tablet Lot 36884 with an expiration date of 03/2022 and trazodone hydrochloride 100 mg tablet lot 36783 with an expiration date of 06/2022.
Neither condition is funny (especially depression) but the combination of the two remedies does seem like the set-up for a joke. Sorry.
