WHAT YOU REALLY NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EXCEDRIN’S RECENT RECALL
If you’ve been gone for months, or haven’t paid attention to the news, you missed a huge story in the medical and prescription medication worlds: last year, Excedrin recalled thousands of their pills and products for migraine sufferers, because a good deal of their boxes and pill bottles had been tampered with, opened, destroyed, and otherwise injured during the manufacturing and shipping processes. While that may not seem like a big deal in the long run (hey, stuff gets messed up during shipping, deal with it, make it safe, and move forward), it nevertheless is a huge issue that needs to be discussed and analyzed, especially as you determine whether or not you should even take on this medication.
Think twice about Excedrin again before you use it blindly, due to safety concerns
Recalling an entire medication is no small feat, and it’s no small task for those who manufacture the medication to call back everything they have ever made as they try to make the entire process a bit safer for you. But that’s exactly what they did with this prescription medication, as it was called back and entirely recalled a year ago to get the manufacturing process safer and more foolproof. Is that really a medication you want to take again, now that it’s back on the market? After all, Excedrin is a good headache medication, but if it’s been tampered with, and products and pill bottles have been opened in the past, who is to say they won’t once again be opened over time?
Talk to your doctor about your concerns with Excedrin and its packaging problems
The best thing you can do is to talk to your doctor about these issues with this medication, and find a good alternative solution that can allow you to relieve yourself of your migraines and other problems, without having to deal with the dangerous problems of an opened or otherwise tampered medication. Your doctor can provide high quality prescription drugs that can work wonders for your headaches and other issues, without being concerned about over the counter medications that can be destroyed and tampered with when it comes to your personal use, and in turn, your quality of life and overall health.
Over the counter medications like Excedrin are dangerous; do you know who has handled what you put in your body?
This issue, and the recall itself, proves just how dangerous an over the counter medication like this really is to patients and consumers. Do you really know who is handling your medications? How do you know that nothing has been tampered with or otherwise altered before you use it and put it in your body? Excedrin is surely to blame here for their lack of oversight and lack of awareness of this problem, as it undoubtedly could have damaged and hurt many lives; do you really want to go back to this medication after their history of poor decisions, poor manufacturing, and lax safety concerns for you, the consumer and patient?
