A mixup in dosages has prompted a recall of Jantoven® Warfarin. A single bottle was found to contain 10 mg pills, rather than the 3 mg tablets on the label.
Upsher-Smith Laboratories is voluntarily recalling one lot (lot #284081) of Jantoven® Warfarin Sodium, 3 mg, to protect patients from getting an overdose.
Anticoagulation therapy needs careful control. An overdose from taking 10 milligrams of the medicine, rather than the expected 3, could lead to life-threatening bleeding.
If you think that your medication might be mislabeled, call your doctor right away. Don’t stop taking warfarin without talking to the doctor, but don’t risk taking the wrong dose.
Consumers and pharmacists can call the Upsher-Smith medical information line at 1-888-650-3789 for more information and to access product details, Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (CST).
