NEW TAINTED DRUGS MEANS MORE MENINGITIS

While it was initially thought that the recent fungal meningitis outbreak was a result of only one tainted steroid, there are reports this week that there are three new cases that are linked to different drugs made by the same compounding pharmacy.  The FDA is investigating, and has not provided any definitive answers yet.

The drugs that are under suspicion are another steroid and a drug used during heart surgery.   Doctors are now being told to contact all patients who received any injections made by the pharmacy.
