Possible Label Switch Prompts Recall of Generic Citalopram 10mg and Finasteride 5mg
What does this mean?
Since taking the recalled medicine could lead to serious side effects, this recall should be taken seriously. Because pharmacies often repackage tablets and place them in a prescription bottle, it may be difficult to determine the manufacturer and lot number of your prescription. If you take a generic version of Citalopram 10mg Tablets or Finasteride 5mg Tablets, please take your tablets to your pharmacist to examine and determine if your tablets are involved in the recall. Signs that your Citalopram 10mg or Finasteride 5mg prescription may be involved in the recall include: if it is labeled with the lot number FI0510058-A or the manufacturer Greenstone, if you notice that your tablets look different that what you normally receive, or if you are experiencing unusual side effects.

If you take Citalopram 10mg Tablets or Finasteride 5mg Tablets and believe you may have taken the wrong medication, you should contact your doctor or other healthcare provider as soon as possible. Also, any adverse events that may be related to the use of these products should be reported to Pfizer Inc. at 1-800-438-1985 (24 hours a day) or to the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program by telephone at 1-800-332-1088, by fax at 1-800-332-0178, by mail at MedWatch, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787, or on the MedWatch website at

Pfizer subsidiary Greenstone LLC has recalled some of its generic antidepressant Citalopram 10mg Tablets in a 100-count bottle and its generic prostate drug Finasteride 5mg Tablets in a 90-count bottle. The recall is due to the possibility that incorrect labels have been placed on the bottles. Both of the recalled medicines carry the lot number FI0510058-A on the label.
