The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Consumer Alert: Pentrexyl Forte Natural

    FDA has recalled Pentrexyl Forte Natural because the packaging is believed to be misleading — causing it to be confused with an antibiotic.

    Here’s what we know.

    • Pentrexyl Forte Natural is a dietary supplement only.
    • It does not contain antibiotics and if used by ill individuals could delay treatment for serious illnesses.
    • The product is packaged in a green and white box, containing 30 red and white capsules.
    • The product was sold through retail stores in Texas.

    The bottom line?

    Healthcare professionals and patients are encouraged to report adverse events, side effects, or product quality problems related to the use of these products to the FDA’s MedWatch Safety Information and Adverse Event Reporting Program.
