Abbott Laboratories Recalls Raductil due to potential for Severe Side Effects
November 1, 2010 – This week, Abbott Laboratories announced the recall of obesity drug Raductil following its withdrawal from U.S. and Canadian markets at the request of federal health regulators.
Raductil, whose active ingredient is sibutramine hydrochloride, was withdrawn last month after being on the market for 13 years. The FDA’s decision was based on a six-year clinical trial which evaluated the diet drug’s cardiovascular safety in high-risk patients, highlighting the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
