CORPUS CHRISTI -- A local pain management clinic purchased drugs from the New England pharmacy at the center of a nationwide fungal Meningitis outbreak, according to documents released by the FDA Monday.
Coastal Bend Pain Management was listed as a customer of the New England Compounding Center, the Massachusetts-based pharmacy which recalled several drugs last month after a concern they might be contaminated with a rare and deadly form of Meningitis.
Drugs the clinic purchased include: Triamcinolone Acetonide, Phenylphrine/Tropicamide/Ketorolac, Cardioplegia, Betamethasone Repository, Methylprednisolone and Triple Anesthetic Cream.
The clinic was closed for the day when we stopped by for comment.
There is no indication that the clinic received contaminated samples of the drug. There is also no indication that any of the clinic's patients are at risk.
