Lunelle Monthly Contraceptive Injection (medroxyprogesterone acetate and estradiol cypionate injectable suspension)

Audience: Pharmacists and Reproductive healthcare professionals

Pharmacia announced a voluntary recall of all Lunelle prefilled syringe lots on the market, due to a lack of assurance of full potency and possible risk of contraceptive failure. Lunelle packaged in vials is not affected by this recall. The affected lots were distributed in the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands during 2002.
