Ranitidine Recall

The FDA has announced a voluntary recall of certain lots of ranitidine syrup.  The medication affected is a generic form of Zantac produced by Lannett Company, Inc.   By our records, your child may be currently on this product.  Out of an abundance of caution, we recommend that you stop giving your infant or child this medication until you can verify that your prescription is not part of this recall.  We recommend that you contact the pharmacy where you received the medication.  They can verify whether your prescription was affected by the recall and may be able to provide the same medication from a different manufacturer.  Please contact our office if you need to switch to an alternative medication.  More details about the recall are available at the FDA website.
