Those who are using the medicine should see their doctors

The SFDA is advising patients using the medicine to seek their doctor's advise and be prescribed something else in its place.

Information was received by the SFDA that the Jusprin 81 mg has quality flaws which has now resulted in it being withdrawn from all facilities that sell it.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, you may call the SFDA's call center number: 19999

Peeps who have been using the meds had asked the SFDA a couple of questions

"Okay, what's the alternative?"

To which the SFDA responded, "You can learn about the alternatives through the Tra "We Care" mobile app via the interactive services" icon.

"I have a heart condition and have been using this medicine for three years. What do I do?"

The SFDA's response: "There is no risk, the replacement is purchased or directed to the health side."
