Antibiotic doxycycline hyclate

More than 3,000 bottles of the antibiotic doxycycline hyclate are being recalled because one bottle was found to contain a muscle relaxant, federal officials said. Doxycycline hyclate, distributed by Goldline Laboratories, is used to treat a wide range of infections including venereal diseases, acne and life-threatening pneumonia. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said Thursday that the mislabeled muscle relaxant, carisoprodol, could harm patients because it would not treat their infections and could impair their mental and physical abilities.The recalled bottles have the lot numbers 824039, 844059, 863069, 882079, 883079 and 919099. The FDA said a patient who finds that he has the mislabeled product should stop using it, contact his physician and return the prescription to a pharmacy.
