Learn About Your Legal Options Related to the Primus Recall of Limbrel
The FDA has announced that a recall of all unexpired Limbrel products is now underway by Primus Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which has marketed the osteoarthritis medication since 2004. This recall of Limbrel is the result of the FDA’s investigation into at least 30 complaints that the agency has received relating to “serious and reversible side effects associated with Limbrel.” The osteoarthritis medication has been marketed to physicians for over 13 years, with approximately 2 million prescriptions and physician samples of the medication provided to an estimated 450,000 patients. The products included in the recall include:
- Limbrel (flavocoxid) 250 mg capsules
- Limbrel250 (250 mg flavocoxid with 50 mg citrated zinc bisglycinate) capsules
- Limbrel (flavocoxid) 500 mg capsules
- Limbrel500 (500 mg flavocoxid with 50 mg citrated zinc bisglycinate) capsules
The FDA reports that the serious side effects experienced by patients include “elevated liver function tests or acute hypersensitivity pneumonitis.” The side effects can occur within a few weeks of use of Limbrel, but may not be noticed by the patient until a doctor consultation or until the symptoms worsen to the point that they require hospitalization. If you have taken Limbrel, and believe you may have experienced the serious side effects associated with the medication leading to the recall, you may be entitled to compensation.
