Patients taking the antidepressant Effexor (venlafaxine) should be aware that the drug manufacturer Pfizer has issued a recall of one lot of the medications after they discovered one bottle contained a heart drug used to treat atrial fibrillation.
The medication found is Tikosyn that was discovered in one bottle of Effexor XR. The heart medication could cause abnormal heartbeat that could cause symptoms of dizziness, sweating, pallor and fainting.
Patients should check their antidepressant for lot numbers 130142 and V130140, with expiration date of October 2015. Also recalled is Effexor XR with Greenstone lot number V130014, which expires in August 2015.
The antidepressant recall includes two lots of Effexor XR® 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules and one lot of Greenstone’s Venlafaxine HCl 150 Mg Extended-Release Capsules.
The FDA warns the interaction between the heart drug Tikosyn and venlafaxine “could be fatal”.
Hi friends - if you know anyone who might use the medication, please reblog/signal boost
thank you for this, I actually do take this medication. I checked them and they are not manufactured by Pfizer so I think I’m safe. but this still is good to know.
Mermaid illustration obtained by Blomhoff, late Edo period (artist unknown)
Reports of mermaid encounters were not uncommon in 19th-century Japan, and a number of illustrated documents from that period - including a few by notable natural historians - depict some fantastic specimens rarely seen in today’s world.
This mermaid illustration from the National Museum of Ethnology (Leiden, Netherlands) was obtained by Dutch trader Jan Cock Blomhoff, who served as director of the Dejima trading post in Nagasaki from 1817 to 1824. The drawing appears to show a different mermaid than Blomhoff’s famous mummified specimen, which is also owned by the museum.
My local rescue has a program called Book Buddies where kids read to sheltered cats to keep them from being lonely.
So many libraries offer Read To A Dog events, why not Read to A Cat. Also, Happy Monday. Kitties! Squee!
I am not good at having feelings but every time this photo pops up I tear up a little. I think it’s the way their heads are together.
Oh my god
HEY EVERYONE. I’m working with a gay men’s youth group this month, and to do my part I’m trying to raise a little money. I put together this little EP of music. It has 6 songs, all previously unreleased, 3 of which I wrote. The money goes to a good cause (GLBTQ organizations for the win!). Take a look, and if you like it, maybe share it with your friends?
