I just got a refill for 160 my Valsartan and it is made in CHINA! This was from OptimumRX. The generic I previously got from CVS was made in the USA. The other label on the container was Solco. The "Made in China" was obscured by the instructions but after carefully peeling them off, it was visible. I am not comfortable taking this very important drug when it is made in China.

Hello JLC,

In the United States medication is regulated by the FDA and has to meet comply with specific criteria in order to stay legal. Some medication is made in the United States and some is made in foreign countries, much in the same way some of our clothes are. Regardless of the pills origins, to be sold in the United States legally they must follow the FDA rules.

If you purchased your medication from a local pharmacy I wouldn't worry about it too much, however, if you purchased the pills online you may be justified in your worry. I say this because often people who buy pills online do not have the means to check the legal integrity of the suppliers in the way that a pharmacy would.

If you are still worried about the contents of your pills you can always take them to your pharmacy and see if they will verify the contents of your medication.

I hope that you have a wonderful day.
