What is Digitek?

Digoxin is a medication used to treat congestive heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms and other heart conditions. It has been marketed under the brand name Digitek.

What are the dangers associated with Digitek?

On April 25, 2008, drug manufacturer Actavis Totowa LLC issued a Class I recall of Digitek (digoxin) tablets. Digitek was recalled due to the possibility that tablets were doubled in thickness and could contain twice the appropriate level of the active ingredient.

The existence of double-strength pills pose a risk of digitalis toxicity, which can result in nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, cardiac instability, bradycardia and even death.

Digitek is a registered trademark of Actavis Totowa (formerly Amide Pharmaceutical, Inc.) for their digoxin tablets, which are prescribed to treat heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. The drug is distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc., under a “Bertek” label and by UDL Laboratories, Inc. under a “UDL” label.

Patients taking Digitek should contact their physician immediately for medical advice. Retailers who carry Digitek should return the product to the place of purchase. Overdosing on this drug can be very dangerous.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
