In November 2008, ETHEX Corporation, issued a recall of morphine sulfate after releasing lots of oversized tablets to pharmacies. Oversized tablets may contain more than the intended levels of the active drug ingredient, which could result in patients receiving as much as about twice the expected dosage of the drug.
Overdoses of morphine sulfate can have serious or life-threatening consequences. These consequences can include respiratory depression (difficulty or lack of breathing) and low blood pressure, which can result in brain damage and death.
Symptoms and side effects include: shallow breathing; slowed heartbeat; seizures; anxiety, memory loss and confusion, and severe weakness. Several patients have reportedly died after taking oversized defective dosages.
Consumers who experience any adverse reactions to these drugs should contact their physician and/or healthcare provider immediately.
The recalled lot numbers of Morphine Sulfate Immediate-Release tablets 15 mg are: 77852-54, 81746, 82519-20, 84113, and 90276-78. The recalled lots of the 30 mg tablets are: 75093, 77855-57, 82297, 82521-22, 87239, 88925, and 90288-98).
