Magnesium Recall

I'm not sure if this will affect any other heart kiddos, but I wanted to let you know just incase.  This morning I received a phone call from our pharmacy (Rock Canyon Pharmacy in Provo...) informing me that Madison's Magnesium has been recalled.  They have advised us to stop using her current med and to pick up a new one.  I'm not sure how many pharmacies this affected... maybe just mine...
I also contacted our Transplant Coordinator (Michelle Cardon).  She was not aware of the recall, but advised us to have Madison's Magnesium levels checked.  hmm..  I never thought that a recall might happen.. Has this happened to anyone else?

Oh no! Is she on a compounded?? Gabriella is on magnesium and I wonder if I should call!

scary when things are recalled! Guess I'll be asking about it too. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm sorry this happened to you. I wish Drug Companies would check these things out BEFORE they put them on the market. it is very upsetting, even more so when children are involved.
I hope all is o.k.
