Sun Inc. Recalls Brain Hemorrhage Medication
Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc. (Sun Inc.) recently recalled one lot of Nimodipine Capsules, 30 mg, due to possible crystallization which may result in unknown clinical health consequences in users.
The Nimodipine capsules, which are marketed by Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Ltd. are meant to treat problems associated with bleeding in the brain known as subarachnoid hemorrhage.
Liquid in Nimodipine Capsules May Crystallize
