Digitek Digoxin Recall Lawsuit

No Longer Accepting CasesDigitek (digoxin tablets, USP), manufactured by Actavis Totowa, has been linked to serious risk of Digitalis toxicity in those patients suffering from renal failure.

What is the problem with Digitek (Digoxin)?

Digitek is a drug used to treat heart failure as well as abnormal heart rhythms. Actavis has issued a Class I recall on the Digitek tablets because there is a possibility that tablets with twice the appropriate thickness might have been commercially released. These tablets may contain twice the approved level of active ingredient than it intended. This double strength tablet poses a serious risk of toxicity for those who suffer from renal failure or reduced kidney function. The digitalis will accumulate in the body instead of being excreted normally through urine, thus caused the toxicity. Digitalis toxicity can occur from a single exposure or chronic overmedication.
