NO: In august, 2005, following the fda's decision to order changes to warnings on NSAID packaging, wyeth pharmaceuticals informed the fda that it would discontinue manufacturing Orudis kt. In 2006, the fda issued a statement that Orudis kt was "not withdrawn from sale for reasons of safety or effectiveness." wyeth has not spoken openly about its decision to withdraw Orudis kt from the market.
