It is unclear if this includes generics, so finding that out would be important.

I have taken that about 15 times a few years ago. Now I take Nexium.  You just never know what they might find   in medicine.  Most of us take medication, so we are at the mercy of it unfortunately.

They didn’t mention the generic one. It must have different ingredients in it. So try not to worry, it must be okay. I take mine everyday too...

We have a call into CVS.

Last week they absolutely guaranteed that the generic, manufactured by GlenMark Pharma was not involved in the recall(s)

This week they offered to refund it and switch it if possible.  They are supposed to be getting back to us, asap.

That was yesterday.

Nothing yet but this is alarming.  Big industry in India, including GlenMark...

Heartburn drugs are toxic to the body. Find a natural cure and stop poisoning yourselves.

Happy Jalapenos.
