Pfizer is recalling two production lots of Effexor XR capsules and one lot of generic Effexor, or venlafaxine, sold by its Greenstone subsidiary. The company says a pharmacist reported that one bottle of Effexor XR contained a capsule of Tikosyn, a treatment for irregular heartbeat.
Pfizer described the recall as a precaution, saying it hasn't received any other reports and that it believes there is a very low probability that there are Tikosyn capsules in other bottles of Effexor XR.
The New York drugmaker says customers, including pharmacies, hospitals, government agencies, and distributors, are being informed about the recall. It says patients who have a recalled bottle should contact their physicians.
