Important recall information Losartan and Losartan HCTZ

If you’ve recently filled Losartan or Losartan HCTZ with Humana Pharmacy, we wanted to let you know that certain manufacturers have issued recalls of select lots of the medicine. The affected lots are being recalled due to an unexpected impurity in the manufacturer’s active pharmaceutical ingredient (API).

We understand that this medicine is important to your health. Based on the available information and at the manufacturer’s recommendation, you should continue to take this medicine until you receive guidance from your healthcare provider, as the risk of harm to your health may be higher if the treatment is stopped immediately without any alternative treatment. Humana Pharmacy is in the process of evaluating our dispensing of the recalled products and if you received recalled product, we will be sending you ament supply of non-recalled Losartan in the next 7-10 days.

Additionally, since the summer of 2018, many manufacturers have issued, and continue to issue, recalls for this class of drugs called Angiotensin Receptor Blockers. For this reason, we highly encourage you to discuss with your healthcare provider the possibility of changing your therapy to a different class of medicine. There are many alternative medicines that may be appropriate for you. Changing to a different class of medication would help ensure that you are not affected by any future recalls due to this impurity issue.

If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-379-0092 (TTY: 711). We’re available Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. — 11 p.m. and Saturday, 8 a.m. — 6:30 p.m., Eastern time.
