What’s the Problem?
According to a Recall Notice issued by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), consumption of undeclared minoxidil could cause the following serious side effects:
- Heart failure
- Heart damage
- Low blood pressure (hypotension)
- Rapid heartbeat
- Salt and water retention causing swelling
- Excess fluid between the heart and the sac surrounding the heart
“MasterPharm, LLC. has received 33 reports of increased heart rate, retention of water, dizziness and low blood pressure,” FDA said.
The problem was found when routine testing by the FDA identified the presence of minoxidil in MasterPharm Finasteride Plus. Affected products are packaged in orange prescription bottles containing 30 capsules or blue prescription bottles containing 90 capsules and the numbers 02-27-2020:04@11, as well as a Beyond Use Date of August 25, 2020.
If you purchased any Finasteride that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and return it to MasterPharm for a replacement. This recall began on May 6, 2020.
