Voluntary Recall of Dexamethasone Vials & New NDC Number for Solu-Cortef Act-o-Vial

There has been a voluntary recall of Dexamethasone injection ( vials), both single and multiple dose. This is sometimes used to treat an Adrenal Insufficiency/Addison's crisis. I am enclosing the link to the FDA/ Recall-Firm Press Release, dated Mar. 16, 2011. Please read for further explanation of recall.

Please read if you use dexamethasone as your emergency injectable.

Solu-Cortef Act-O-Vial Preservative Free!

Pfizer is now only producing Solu-Cortef Act-O-Vial preservative free. The new NDC number is 00009-0011-03 for the 100 mg. vial. This is the recommended dose for an adult during an adrenal crisis. If you are being told that the act-o-vial is no longer available, please ask the pharmacy to look for the above NDC number.
