Brand name: Ferring, Amring, CSL Behring
Product recalled: DDAVP® Nasal Spray 10 mcg/0.1mL, Desmopressin Acetate Nasal Spray 10 mcg/0.1mL, STIMATE® Nasal Spray 1.5 mg/mL
Reason of the recall: Superpotency
FDA Recall date: August 05, 2020
Recall details: Ferring Pharmaceuticals US is voluntarily recalling all lots on the market of DDAVP® Nasal Spray 10 mcg/0.1mL, Desmopressin Acetate Nasal Spray 10 mcg/0.1mL, and STIMATE® Nasal Spray 1.5 mg/mL listed in the table below to the consumer level. These products are being recalled due to superpotency or amounts of desmopressin higher than specified. These out of specification results were obtained during routine testing. The risks associated with higher than specified amounts of desmopressin relate to abnormally low levels of sodium in the blood (i.e., hyponatremia) which could eventually lead to seizure, coma, and death.

To date, Ferring has not received an increase in adverse event reports due to increased concentrations of desmopressin from users of the nasal spray. A single non-fatal adverse event potentially associated with this issue was reported in the US during the timeframe that the affected product was distributed. DDAVP® Nasal Spray is indicated as antidiuretic replacement therapy in the management of central cranial diabetes insipidus and for management of the temporary polyuria and polydipsia following head trauma or surgery in the pituitary region.

Desmopressin Acetate Nasal Spray is indicated as antidiuretic replacement therapy in the management of central cranial diabetes insipidus and for management of the temporary polyuria and polydipsia following head trauma or surgery in the pituitary region.

Stimate® Nasal Spray is indicated for the treatment of patients with hemophilia A with Factor VIll coagulant activity levels greater than 5%.

Stimate® Nasal Spray is indicated for the treatment of patients with mild to moderate classic von Willebrand’s disease (Type I) with Factor VIII levels greater than 5%.

Ferring US is notifying its distributors and wholesale customers by letter and asking them to check for impacted product and to return unused product through directions provided in the recall letter. You can see the affected product name, including the batch numbers and expiration dates, in the link below.

Distributors/wholesalers with questions regarding the recall should call Stericycle at 1-888-228-5053. Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax.
