Pfizer recalls antidepressant after report of wrong drug in bottle

Pfizer said it was recalling two lots of its Effexor XR antidepressant and another lot of its generic version of the drug after a pharmacist reported finding one capsule of a different medicine in a bottle of Effexor.
The other drug found by the pharmacist was Tikosyn, which is used to treat a common and potentially dangerous irregular heartbeat known as atrial fibrillation.
