Sandoz Inc. (“Sandoz”) is initiating a voluntary recall of 13 lots (listed below) of oral Orphenadrine Citrate 100 mg Extended Release (ER) Tablets to the consumer level. The presence of a nitrosamine (N-methyl-N-nitroso-2-[(2-methylphenyl)phenylmethoxy]ethanamine (NMOA or Nitroso-Orphenadrine)) impurity, which has the potential to be above the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s Acceptable Daily Intake (ADI) limit of 26.5 ng/day, was detected in the lots during recent testing. These 13 lots of Orphenadrine Citrate ER Tablets were shipped to customers from August 2019 to April 2021.

Nitrosamines are substances with carcinogenic potency (substances that could cause cancer) when present above the allowable exposure limits. While the use of product belonging to the recalled lots may represent a risk to patients, to date, Sandoz has not received any reports of adverse events related to the presence of a nitrosamine impurity in the lot.

Orphenadrine Citrate ER Tablets are used as an adjunct to rest, physical therapy and other measures for the relief of discomfort associated with acute painful musculoskeletal conditions. The product is packaged in 100-count and 1000-count bottles and was distributed nationwide in the USA to wholesalers and distributors.
