First, it was a few manufacturers of Valsartan..then more and more. As a result, I had switched many patients (myself indcluded) to Irbesartan….a very similar medication. Now there are concerns about small amounts of carcinogen in Irbesartan. It is just starting with only one manufacturer, but probably there will be more.
For now…sit tight and don’t change. There may be no safe harbor. Issue is developing.
We will keep you posted. Here is what the FDA is saying..so check on this for now. Check >>>HERE<<<
