Epilepsy Drug Syringes May Put Patients at Risk

The cracks allow some of the gel to leak so patients do not receive the necessary dose. Valeant Pharmaceuticals has sent warning letters to pharmacists asking them to inspect the syringes before distributing them. Associated Press, USA Today 04/04/2006 Read Article: USA Today
