FDA recalls thyroid medication

On 9 August 2018, Westminster Pharmaceuticals announced that they were issuing a voluntary recall of their thyroid tablets, which contain synthetic versions (Levothyroxine and Liothyronine) of thyroid hormones underproduced in individuals with hypothyroidism.

The warning was issued August 9 for Levothyroxine and Liothyronine 15 mg, 30 mg, 60 mg, 90 mg, and 120 mg thyroid tablets.

Westminster Pharmaceuticals, LLC is voluntarily recalling all lots of both Levothyroxine and Liothyronine, which were distributed as tablets at the wholesale level.

A pharmaceutical company is recalling two thyroid medications due to risks of contamination, also known as "adulteration".

The FDA says those ingredients were found to have deficiencies.

Patients taking the recalled medicine should continue taking their medicine until they have a replacement, according to the FDA.
