The Edo State Government has warned residents of the state against the sale and use of Norvasc 5mg tablets following a red flag by the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) which said the drug contains strings.
The warning was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by the Commissioner for Health in Edo, Benin, Obehi Akoria.
Norvasc is used to treat high blood pressure.
Ms Akoria’s statement said: “NAFDAC has issued a warning that the Taiwan Food and Drug Administration ordered the recall of two batches of six million Norvasc 5mg tablets.
“The drug was produced by US-based drug developer Viatris Inc.
“This information makes the two batches of Norvasc 5mg tablets bad grades.
“All individuals, pharmacies and healthcare facilities who may have any of these batches of Norvasc 5mg tablets in stock should immediately dispose of them using appropriate means,” the commissioner said.
He urged Edo residents to be vigilant and consult with their doctors to discuss appropriate alternatives.
