Digitek® (Digoxin) Recall Lawsuit

sc-no-longer-accepting-cases

Digitek® (digoxin tablets), a drug manufactured by Actavis Totowa LLC and used to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms has been linked to Digitalis toxicity. Digitalis toxicity can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, cardiac instability and bradycardia. Death can also result from excessive Digitalis intake.

What’s the problem?

Actavis Totowa LLC, a United States manufacturing division of the international generic pharmaceutical company Actavis Group, is initiating a Class I nationwide recall of Digitek® (digoxin tablets, USP, all strengths) for oral use. The products are distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc., under a “Bertek” label and by UDL Laboratories, Inc. under a “UDL” label.

According to reports, patients taking Digitek or Digoxin are receiving phone calls from their pharmacist and/or letters from their pharmacy advising them of the recall.

The voluntary all lot recall is due to the possibility that tablets with double the appropriate thickness may have been commercially released. These tablets may contain twice the approved level of active ingredient than it appropriate.

Digitek® is used to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. The existence of double strength tablets poses a risk of digitalis toxicity in patients with renal failure. Digitalis toxicity can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, cardiac instability and bradycardia. Death can also result from excessive Digitalis intake.

Several reports of illnesses and injuries have been reported to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
