Lupin Pharmaceuticals has recalled two lots of Tydemy birth control pills due to potential effectiveness issues. The recalled pills may not contain enough of an inactive ingredient called ascorbic acid, which could reduce their effectiveness at preventing pregnancy.
The recalled pills are:
- Lot L200183
- Lot L200184
These pills were distributed nationwide to pharmacies and supermarkets from June 2022 through May 2023.
The FDA has urged individuals currently taking the recalled lots of the drugs to continue their medication but to immediately consult their doctor for an alternative. Lupin also advises patients to continue taking their medication and to promptly contact their healthcare provider for advice regarding an alternative contraceptive method.
Lupin is recalling the affected lots at the wholesale level.
The FDA is investigating the issue and it is not yet clear what caused the pills to be less effective. However, Lupin has said that the issue is related to the stability of the pills, which means that the pills may not have been stored properly.
If you are taking one of the recalled lots of Tydemy, you should contact your doctor to discuss your options. You can also report any problems with the pills to the FDA online or by fax.
- Check your Tydemy pills to see if they are part of the recall.
- If you are taking one of the recalled lots, contact your doctor to discuss your options.
- Report any problems with the pills to the FDA.
The recall of Tydemy birth control pills is a reminder of the importance of taking medications as directed. If you are taking any medication, it is important to be aware of any recalls and to contact your doctor if you have any concerns.
