    Exclamation Generic Apotex Drugs Banned In Canada

    On September 30th, 2014 Health Canada banned the import of drug products from three India-based facilities operated by pharmaceutical company Apotex (Apotex Pharamchem India Pvt Ltd, Apotext Research Private limited, and IPCA Laboratories). The ban was prompted by concerns about quality data and drug safety. Products affected by the ban include medications that may be used by individuals with Tourette Syndrome and associated conditions, including:

    • Apo-Risperidone
    • Apo-Alpraz
    • Apo-Atomoxetine
    • Apo-Olanzapine
    • Apo-Methylphenidate
    • Mar-Quetiapine



    The Tourette Syndrome Foundation of Canada urges Canadians to check Health Canada's list of products affected by the ban, and to contact their doctor if they have any concerns related to their Apotex prescriptions. Health Canada has not issued a recall because safety issues in Apotex drugs currently being sold by pharmacies have not been identified.

    The complete list is attached to this post for download / viewing / printing.
