Nitrosamine

Nitrosamine

In July 2018 Health Canada first became aware of the presence of nitrosamine impurity, N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) in certain “sartan” angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) blood pressure medications and has been working to address the issue. Similar nitrosamine impurities were subsequently found in other medications. Health Canada has requested manufacturer to test their products if a risk of nitrosamines is identified.
