FDA: Take Contaminated Blood Pressure Drugs During Recall

As various lots of blood pressure medication have been recalled, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is giving patients an odd suggestion: Go ahead, and take the pills that might contain a carcinogen — at least until new pills are available.

"Currently, valsartan products are in shortage, and we know that other types of products have the potential to fall into shortage soon," an FDA statement released Thursday says. "In anticipation, the agency is not objecting to temporary distribution of specific lots of losartan that contain impurities above the interim acceptable intake limit, for a short period of time."

Last summer, dozens of blood pressure medications were recalled because of trace amounts of N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) or N-Nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA). NDMA and NDEA are probable carcinogens, and the FDA has found levels of the impurities in three drugs: valsartan, irbesartan and losartan-containing products.

The FDA says its scientists do not think taking contaminated pills will have "a meaningful increased risk for cancer" over the time it's expected to replenish supply. They also stressed that discontinuing blood pressure medicine altogether could increase risk for other serious health problems, including stroke.

The recalled drugs are part of a large class called angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). These drugs work by widening or relaxing blood vessels, thus lowering blood pressure.
