RECALL: Blood pressure medication contains cancer causing impurities

    ScieGen Pharmaceuticals is recalling Irbesartan Tablets, USP 75 mg, 150 mg, and 300 mg dosage forms.

    The FDA says certain blood pressure medications have been recalled because they contain impurities believed to cause cancer.

    If your medication is among those recalled, you're asked to call your doctor or pharmacist immediately. But the FDA does say that until you find an alternate treatment, you should continue taking your prescription because you could risk more harm if you stop taking your medicine altogether.
