FDA warns: Stop taking Limbrel!

Potentially deadly side effects lead to nationwide recall

Limbrel, a prescription “medical food” capsule given to people with osteoarthritis, has been recalled by its maker after the FDA warned of “potentially life-threatening” side effects. In fact, they are telling patients to stop taking Limbrel now.

Since 2007 there have been dozens of reports of dangerous side effects in people taking Limbrel. The most serious are drug-induced liver injury and a lung condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

Both conditions can be fatal.

The FDA warns users to stop taking Limbrel now. Limbrel has been recalled by its manufacturer.

Is there a Limbrel recall?

In December 2017 the FDA urged Primus Pharmaceuticals to recall Limbrel. Though it is marketed as a “medical food,” the FDA says Limbrel is in fact an “unapproved new drug.” And because the agency can’t force mandatory drug recalls, they could only ask Primus to act.

In late January 2018, Primus announced a recall, and told patients to call their doctor if they have experienced any Limbrel side effects.

How do I know if I’ve been hurt by Limbrel?

Since 2007 there have been dozens of reports of dangerous side effects in people taking the arthritis treatment. The most serious are drug-induced liver injury, and a lung condition called hypersensitivity pneumonitis, both of which can be lethal.

Drug-induced liver injury:

This is a rare but very serious reaction to medication that can lead to jaundice, liver failure, or even death. Early symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Vague abdominal pain
  • Loss Of appetite
  • Itching
  • Easy bruising
  • Yellowing of the eyes or skin

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis:

This is an immune system disorder that causes inflammation, making it harder for the lungs to work. Symptoms of hypersensitivity pneumonitis include:

  • Flu-like fever, chills, muscle or joint pain, or headaches
  • Crackling sounds in the lungs
  • Cough
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Shortness of breath
  • Anorexia or weight loss
  • Fatigue
  • Fibrosis of the lungs
  • Clubbing of fingers or toes

 

Limbrel side effects may not be obvious – it’s important that you call your doctor.

Between 2007 and 2017, the FDA heard 30 reports of potentially fatal Limbrel side effects. The agency said these conditions may not be obvious to the patient until they see their doctor, or the side effects become bad enough to require hospitalization.

There have been no deaths associated with Limbrel arthritis treatment yet, and the FDA said that harmful side effects resolve after people stop taking Limbrel.
