High blood pressure: Pfizer recalls drug over cancer risk


This does not mean that breathing normal air will increase a person’s risk of developing cancer and neither will it mean drinking tap water will either.

With regard to Accuretic and Inderal, it is the case that the presence of a type of Nitrosamine is so high that it could cause a medicinal problem.

Health Canada, where the recall has occurred, has said there is no immediate risk in patients continuing to take Pfizer’s medication.

What it does suggest is that patients should discuss treatment alternatives with their doctor.
