The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a class 2 medicines recall for Tetrabenazine 25 mg tablets.

AOP Orphan Pharmaceuticals is recalling all unexpired stock of the product with batch number T1704UK from pharmacies and wholesalers as a precautionary measure. This is due to out of specification results for the assay, obtained during routine stability testing.

Pharmacists are asked to stop supplying the product immediately, quarantine remaining stock and return it to the supplier using the approved process.
