Precautionary recall of Irbesartan 150 mg film coated tablets

Accord is taking immediate steps to recall Irbesartan 150 mg film coated tablets in accordance with HPRA guidelines to ensure that any packs that might still be on pharmacy shelves are returned.  This decision was taken after Accord was informed of a potential impurity issue in the Irbesartan API supplied from a third-party facility.  At present there is no evidence that this impurity has caused any harm to patients and the recall is a precautionary measure.  Patients prescribed Irbesartan 150 mg should not stop taking their medicine and should speak to their local healthcare professional for further advice.  The Irbesartan 75 & 300 mg are unaffected.
