Digitek

Digitek, manufactured by Actavis Totowa LLC, is a plant-derived drug prescribed to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. In April 2008, the manufacturer issued a recall when it discovered that some Digitek tablets had twice the amount of digitoxin, the active ingredient in Digitek. The recalled Digitek caused serious side effects, including low blood pressure, kidney failure, bradycardia (reduced heart rate), cardiac instability, and death. Even normal doses of Digitek can cause serious side effects, however, including blurred vision, intestinal hemorrhagic necrosis, hallucinations, anxiety, depression, and thrombocytopenia, which involves a low blood platelet count that increases the risk of bleeding. If you or a loved one has suffered an adverse side effect from Digitek, contact an experienced product liability attorney at Robert B. Sykes Associates, P.C. to discuss your legal options. You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, and other losses suffered as a result of taking Digitek.
