The company in charge of marketing the medicine does not recognize batches A91377K and C599653, presentation of 20 mg and 5 mg respectively; as well as lot A890217K in bottle.
“Any falsified medicine is considered a health risk since its conditions of transport, storage and handling are unknown, so its quality, effectiveness and safety cannot be guaranteed,” the statement read.
