What’s the Problem?
This recall affects 1 lot of 30-count MasterPharm Finasteride Plus capsules packaged in orange prescription bottles with the numbers 02-27-2020:04@11 and a Beyond Use Date of August 25, 2020, according to an FDA Recall Notice issued on 5/11/20.
FDA said the recalled finasteride contains undeclared minoxidil, which has been linked to at least 33 reports of serious side effects, including:
- Heart failure
- Heart damage
- Low blood pressure (hypotension)
- Rapid heartbeat
- Salt and water retention causing swelling
- Excess fluid between the heart and the sac surrounding the heart
The problem was found when FDA testing identified the presence of minoxidil in Finasteride Plus made by MasterPharm, LLC. No other products manufactured by the firm are affected, FDA said.
Consumers who purchased any finasteride included in this recall should stop taking it and contact MasterPharm for information about how to receive a free replacement. Anyone concerned about a potential adverse reaction to minoxidil in finasteride should contact their doctor immediately.
