Voluntary recall of amlodipine

Teva, a drug manufacturer, recently implemented a voluntary recall for amlodipine-valsartan and amlodipine-valsartan-hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) for all lots. Each impacted member will receive a letter informing them to refer to their pharmacist for drug disposal and new medication.

Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker that may be used to treat high blood pressure and chest pain.
