A recent jury trial verdict may have created supply issues for the generic fixed-dosed combination of trandolapril/verapamil hydrochloride ER. In order to help prevent disruption in therapy, Abbott wants to make you aware that their branded TARKA (trandolapril/verapamil hydrochloride ER) is available with no supply issues in all four dosage strengths.
How this change affects patients
Patients who have been taking generic trandolapril/verapamil may notice that TARKA looks different from their old medicine (for example, the color and markings). Please see below for images of the tablets for each of the four strengths of TARKA and counsel your patients on the differences.
