Contaminated Paroxetine (Seroxat) “May Already Have Been Consumed”…

I think this news report speaks for itself…

“The Irish Medicines Board has confirmed that a number of batches of an anti-depressant drug being recalled by GlaxoSmithKline had been placed on the Irish market.

The recall was ordered following a warning from the US Food and Drug Administration said the active ingredient for the drug, manufactured in Co Cork, may have been contaminated with a solvent from a pharmaceutical waste tank.”

“The batches of Paroxetine involved were manufactured in Cork between July 2011 and February 2012, and it is thought the medication manufactured from these batches may have already been consumed.

In January 2012, Glaxo became aware that batches of Paroxetine may have been contaminated by a solvent from a pharmaceutical waste tank at the plant.”
