In addition to the “retail only” recall of the Phentermine 30mg yellow capsules in May, Actavis announced a “retail only” product recall on their Phentermine 15mg gray/yellow capsules and Phentermine 37.5mg capsules. The Phentermine 37.5mg tablets and Phentermine 30mg blue/clear capsules have not been recalled.
This “retaily only” recall does not pose any health concerns for your patients, therefore, you can continue to dispense these medications. Actavis has confirmed that a “retail only” recall does not apply to dispensing physicians. However, if you purchased these Actavis products from us and do not wish to continue to dispense these medications, or would like a copy of the “retail only” recall letter from Actavis, please contact us at 866-839-4840. Actavis has not yet resumed production on any of their Phentermine or Phendimetrazine products. We will keep our customers advised as soon as information becomes available.
Also, Mikart has announced a price increase on their Phendimetrazine 35mg tablets. Unfortunately, we were only informed of this this price increase when we placed our current order, and were not offered a “buy-in” at the old price.
