Sleep Supplement Recalled Due To Undeclared Drugs

On August 7, 2013, Health and Beyond LLC issued a voluntary recall of dietary supplement Tranquility because it was found to contain traces of undeclared drugs, Doxepin and Chlorpromazine.

Doxepin is a tricyclic antidepressant prescribed for insomnia and Chlorpromazine is an antipsychotic prescribed for a variety of psychiatric disorders. These drugs may cause dizziness and other side effects, and may interact with other medications.

Tranquility is packaged in a white bottle containing 30 pills and can be identified by lot numbers 36678 and 36680. It was promoted as a sleep aid and was distributed nationwide through wholesale, retail and internet sales.

Consumers and healthcare providers are also encouraged to report any adverse reactions to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting Program.
