What should I do if I am taking a recalled drug?

Medical professionals advise to keep taking prescription medications that are the subject of recalls until you are able to speak with your doctor, the medication’s prescriber and/or your pharmacist. Some medications may produce withdrawal symptoms if stopped suddenly. Moreover, if the medication is treating a serious health condition, your doctor may want to transition you onto another medication to manage your condition. However, you should stop taking non-prescription (over-the-counter) recalled drugs immediately. Securely store unused medication until you are able to dispose of it according to the instructions in the recall notice or return it and any packaging or proof-of-purchase documents to the place where it was sold.
