Dr. Keith Toms, of Generations Primary Care, said two diabetic patients who were taking the drug had dangerous blood sugar spikes.

A pain medication that has been recalled by the Federal Drug Administration for undeclared ingredients continues to circulate in parts of southern Kentucky.

The Kentucky New Era reported that the drug, marketed under the name "Reumofan Plus," is being distributed locally in Elkton and a local doctor's office says patients on the drug have had dangerous side effects.

The manufacturer, Reumofan Plus USA, LLC and Reumofan USA, LLC, announced a voluntary product recall last month. Used as a treatment for muscle pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, bone cancer and other conditions, the FDA says undeclared ingredients in the drug could result in serious illness.

Dr. Keith Toms, of Generations Primary Care, said two diabetic patients who were taking the drug had dangerous blood sugar spikes.
