Ethex Morphine Recalled Due to Overdose Concerns
A nationwide recall of 60 mg Ethex morphine sulfate tablets was issued in June 2008, after a batch of tablets (lot number 91762) was found to contain up to double the amount of normal medication. Ethex is manufactured by Ethex Corporation.
Ethex morphine is a potent opiate analgesic drug, available through a prescription. With double dosage of the medication, users of Ethex can be subject to:
Ethex morphine side effects
- Breathing difficulties (including breathing failure)
- Low blood pressure
Because users of Ethex morphine took this opiate-based drug to assist with pain management associated with surgery or other injuries, the symptoms of an overdose may not have been evident immediately. If you or a loved one has experienced any of the above problems while taking Ethex morphine tablets, contact the Ethex morphine attorneys at Craig Swapp & Associates immediately.
