Diagnosed with cancer after taking Valsartan? You may have a claim for compensation.

Maine Valsartan Lawyers

Valsartan is one of the world’s most widely prescribed medications for the treatment of high blood pressure. It is effective for treating high blood pressure and heart failure, and for reducing the chance of cardiovascular mortality following a myocardial infarction. Unfortunately, a recent nationwide recall revealed that many batches of the drug already distributed and given to patients contained cancer-causing substances that put the lives of hundreds of thousands of people at risk.

In July 2018, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), along with several health and safety agencies in other countries, issued recalls for numerous medications containing Valsartan after discovering the presence of N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a known carcinogen. Thereafter, in September 2018, the FDA learned that three batches of Valsartan manufactured by Torrent Pharmaceuticals also contained traces of another carcinogenic impurity, N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA).

What to do if you are currently taking Valsartan

If you are currently taking Valsartan or medications containing the drug, the FDA advises you to:

  • Contact your physician or pharmacist so they can advise you about alternative treatments.
  • Continue taking your current medication, as the risk of harm to your health may be higher if the treatment is stopped immediately without any alternative.
  • Contact your physician or healthcare provider if you have experienced any problems that may be related to using these medications.
