Valsartan(generic name: Diovan) is a prescribed drug used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure and other heart related medical conditions. Unfortunately, some valsartan medications might have become contaminated with N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA)- a known carcinogen. Long-term use of this drug has been linked to an increased risk of users suffering from:

  • Kidney cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Liver damage
  • Tumors
  • Gastric cancer

At Mike Brandner Injury Attorneys, we strongly encourage anyone experiencing these symptoms to contact us for a free case review. You might be eligible for compensation for damages to include:

  • Loss of wages
  • Applicable punitive damages
  • Medical expenses resulting from treatment of injuries (past and future)
  • Pain and suffering resulting from injuries (past and future)

NDMA Symptoms

Short-term exposure to NDMA can also result in medical side-effects. Contact your physician or seek medical attention immediately if you or a loved has taken valsartan and experienced the following overexposure symptoms:

  • Jaundice
  • Vomiting
  • Dizziness
  • Enlarged kidney
  • Nausea
  • Fever
  • Headaches
  • Abdominal cramps
  • Reduced function of lungs, liver or kidneys

As with any prescribed drug, users of valsartan should consult their physician before discontinuing use of the drug.

Valsartan FDA Recalls

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a voluntary recall after 22 other countries issued recalls of over 2,300 valsartan batches. Three companies mentioned in major recalls include:

  • Zhejiang Huahai Pharmaceuticals
  • Hetero Labs Limited (sold under the label Camber Pharmaceuticals)
  • Torrent Pharmaceuticals

Since not all valsartan batches may have become contaminated by NDMA, patients were advised to check the label of their bottles of prescriptions for a manufacturer’s name to determine if it was part of the recall.
