Please look at the above website if you take or need information about either of these drugs. One drug is usually used for chemotherapy patients and the other drug is usually used in psychiatric conditions. Below is quoted from the above page about the issue:

 

"The Harvard Drug Group, LLC received a customer complaint from a distributor, that some unit dose cartons labeled as Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules, 20 mg were found to contain blister packages labeled as and containing Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg for Lot T04769.  Accordingly, The Harvard Drug Group, LLC is recalling all of Lot T04769, Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg, which may be in outer cartons that read Dronabinol Capsules, USP, 2.5 mg OR Ziprasidone Hydrochloride Capsules, 20 mg."

Is that one of those growth steroids. I know years ago some body builders used to take a muscle growth steroid. Think it was Diabinol/Dianabol, or something close to that.

@hckynutjohn @No, Dronabinol is actually used to help with nausea and vomiting in chemo patients. It is also used to treat low appetite in some conditions. It's actually man made cannabis. You might have heard to the non generic name of it, Marinol. Dianabol is a steroid. The names sound similar but they are chemically unrelated.
