Hypertensive and heart medication containing valsartan has been recalled around the globe, having been contaminated with a substance believed to cause cancer.
One of the most important aspects of this recall is that those taking valsartan understand that they should not stop their treatment before seeing a medical professional.
MyTherapy have created an infographic explaining the key points regarding the valsartan recall.
