THE SIDE EFFECTS OF NDMA AND VALSARTAN – COMMON VALSARTAN INJURIES
Though research into the long-term consequences of ingestion or consumption of toxic carcinogens such as NDMA and NDEA is ongoing, the preliminary results are certainly concerning. Overexposure to NDMA and NDEA has the worst effect on the kidneys and liver as they attempt to filter the carcinogens from the body.
Some of the less severe side effects of Valsartan include:
- Gastrointestinal issues such as cramps, nausea, and vomiting
- Reduced organ function
Those with prolonged exposure are at higher risk of very serious and potentially fatal side effects.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU WERE AFFECTED, INJURED OR DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER AFTER TAKING VALSARTAN
If you or a loved one believe that you have been or are currently taking contaminated valsartan seeking medical attention should be your first priority. The FDA advises you not to discontinue your medication until receiving a replacement or alternative from your doctor, pharmacist, or healthcare provider. Stopping medication abruptly and without professional guidance can lead to immediate and severe health complications. Your doctor or pharmacist may be able to advise an alternative treatment or provide medication that has not been contaminated. You can search the FDA list of recalled medications here; you should be able to find the drug manufacturer and lot number on the prescription bottle or the warning label. If you are unable to do so, ask your pharmacist for assistance.

With so much money on the line these types of cases can take years to make their way through the courts and to date there have been no significant settlements or verdicts with respect to NDMA and NDEA contamination. But that may change. When there are similar cases nationwide, oftentimes in the thousands, the cases will be initially consolidated into multi-district litigation (MDL) in an effort to streamline the discovery process. In February 2019, a MDL was established for valsartan in federal court in New Jersey and as of this year had over 240 pending lawsuits.
