July 2008

Posted on: July 14th, 2008 by Martek Pharmacal

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.

Actavis expects to have Phentermine 37.5mg tablets available by mid-July. We have not yet been informed as to when they will begin production on any of their Phentermine capsules or Phendimetrazine 35mg tablets. We have a large supply of Phentermine products by KVK-Tech and do not anticipate any product shortages.

Due to issues with the raw materials used to manufacture Thyroid tablets, we have been informed that there will be a delay in the production of Thyroid until September 2008. We are currently out of stock on the Thyroid 2 grain tablets, and have a limited supply of Thyroid 1/2 grain, Thyroid 1 grain, and Thyroid 3 grain tablets. We will keep our customers advised as soon as we receive more information regarding these issues.

Beginning with this July update, we will be running unannounced product specials for our customers that visit our website. Please contact us and mention the “Drew’s News Update” to receive the special pricing. July’s discounted products are:
