    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I've subscribed to the FDA website to get recall alerts to meds that I take....I received two yesterday. Here is the first one for Nitro. I checked my med bottle and the NDC numbers are a match!!! B)

Here's the e-mail:

Recall on All ETHEX Brand NitroQuick Sublingual Tablets

The ETHEX Corporation, a subsidiary of KV Pharmaceutical, has

recalled ALL lots of ETHEX brand NitroQuick sublingual tablets,

which contain the active ingredient nitroglycerin. These

recalled tablets may have been manufactured under conditions

that did not meet the current manufacturing standards called

Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). Some ETHEX products have

recently had specific lots recalled due to defects found,

including oversized tablets. ETHEX is now recalling all of their

products to ensure that no other defective products remain

available to patients.

The ETHEX tablets and the NDC numbers involved in the recall are

listed below. The NDC number is a product number that is

sometimes listed on a prescription label.

NitroQuick Sublingual Tablets, 0.3mg (NDC 58177-323-04)

NitroQuick Sublingual Tablets, 0.4mg (NDC 58177-324-18 & NDC

58177-324-04)

NitroQuick Sublingual Tablets, 0.6mg (NDC 58177-325-04)

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

If you are taking Nitroglycerine, look at your prescription to

see if it is labeled with the generic name "NitroQuick

Sublingual" (0.3mg, 0.4mg, or 0.6mg tablets) and if it was

manufactured by ETHEX Corporation. The manufacturer is often

listed on the prescription label. If you are taking NitroQuick

Sublingual and think your tablets are involved in the recall, or

if you are unsure, take your bottle to your pharmacy for your

pharmacist to check. Most pharmacies will provide you with

replacement medicine if your medicine is involved in the recall

and you return your original bottle.

At this time, this recall has not been associated with any

health problems. If you are using medicine covered by this

recall you should continue to take it as directed until you

speak with your pharmacist - suddenly stopping your medicine may

place you at a greater risk for problems.

If you have any questions or concerns about this alert or your

Nitroglycerine, please follow up with your doctor or pharmacist.

Update:

While I was at the VA today, I took a copy of this e-mail and showed the pharmacy; they seemed shocked. But they did exchange my nitro for a different brand.

Thanks for the headsup,

I've almost finished taking my bottle of nitro

that has NDC 58177-325-04 on it.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
