    Leading Brand Issues Pet Medication Recall



    BREAKING NEWS: Truxton, Inc. has announced a voluntary recall of lots of veterinary anticonvulsant, anti-seizure, and antidepressant medications containing phenobarbital and amitriptyline due to a label mix-up error.
    According to the FDA, inadvertent exposure to or overdose of phenobarbital could cause severe intoxication which may lead to cardiogenic shock, renal failure, coma, or death in humans and animals. Inadvertent exposure to or overdose of amitriptyline could cause uneven heartbeats, extreme drowsiness, confusion, agitation, vomiting, hallucinations, hot or cold sensations, muscle stiffness, seizures (convulsions), or fainting in humans and animals.
