Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc. Issues Nationwide Voluntary Recall of One Lot of Nimodipine Capsules due to Crystallization of the Fill Material
Date:9/4/2012

CRANBURY, N.J., Sept. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sun Pharmaceutical Industries, Inc. (Sun Inc) announced today that it is voluntarily recalling from users one lot of Nimodipine Capsules, 30 mg, marketed by Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories, Ltd. Sun Inc. commenced the recall as a precautionary measure due to the presence of crystals of nimodipine within the capsule solution of this lot as identified by a customer complaint.  No adverse events have been reported at this time.

Nimodipine Capsules, 30 mg, are used to decrease problems due to subarachnoid hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain). Nimodipine capsules 30 mg are clear yellow solution filled in oblong opaque light yellow softgel capsules, imprinted "135" in black ink. The product is supplied in unit dose blisters of 30 and 100, as described below. The affected product was distributed nationwide between January 19, 2012 and April 24, 2012.

The crystallization of the nimodipine fill material in the capsule could adversely affect the product's bioavailability. Although clinical health implications are unknown, use of the product when the nimodipine has crystallized in the capsule may be of great clinical significance. The product may no longer be bioequivalent and may potentially affect patients who are being treated for a medical emergency.

As a precautionary measure, Sun Inc is recalling the following lot numbers to the consumer level to minimize any potential risk to patients

Lot Number: 3305.039A, NDC Number: 57664-135-65 (Unit Dose Blisters of 100 (25x4))
Lot Number: 3305.039B, NDC Number: 57664-135-64 (Unit Dose Blisters of 30 (5x6))

The recalled capsules were manufactured for Sun Inc by Pharmaceutics International, Inc. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.

Patients and healthcare providers using Nimodipine Capsules, 30 mg, with one of the above lot numbers should discontinue use of the product and should contact the following number for more information about the recall:  Inmar Inc. at 1-800-967-5952 (Option 1 then Option 3). Representatives are available Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM EST.

Patients using Nimodipine Capsules, 30 mg, who have medical questions, should contact their healthcare provider for additional instructions or guidance.

Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program online, by regular mail, or by fax.
