Pfizer recalling anti-depressant due to pill error

By Krista Hostetler. CREATED Mar 10, 2014

Washington (KTNV) -- Pfizer is recalling an anti-depressant because the wrong medication may be in the bottle.

It involves the drug Effexor XR and its generic version.

Pfizer said a pharmacist found a capsule of the wrong medicine in the bottle. It was a pill meant to treat irregular heartbeats.

The recall is a precaution.

The two different drugs were packaged on the same line.
