- FDA Announcement: Digitek Recall
Digitalis Toxicity is a condition that may not be well-known, but it’s a risk that’s been found to be prevalent enough in several forms of heart medication recently that the result has been announced as a voluntary, immediate Class I recall by the manufacturers and distributors who manage the drugs placement on the market.
The FDA assisted in the publicity of this announcement, which appeared recently on the agency’s website. The reason for that possibility to arise in patients, particularly those with pre-existing renal failure problems, is that many of the pills that are manufactured are being released with double the thickness of what is intended, which means that heart patients are unknowingly taking twice the medication as they think.
Digitalis toxicity features the following symptoms:
- Low Blood Pressure
- Cardiac Instability
This condition is particularly dangerous for those who already have heart problems, as heart failure can lead to almost instant death. The brands and manufacturers involved in this recall include Actavis Totowa LLC, which manufactures the brand known as Digitek, Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which handles the brand known as Bertek, and UDL Laboratories, Inc., which distributes UDL.
If you are currently taking any form of this medication, you need to contact your doctor immediately to schedule a full medical evaluation as soon as possible in order to plot a course for moving forward. If you have suffered as a result of taking this medication, you need to contact a lawyer as soon as possible to schedule an initial consultation.

Liz was great
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
They knew exactly how to explain the case to me in a way that I would understand it. They gave me hope that my life wasn’t over.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Although my accident was fortunately not a major one, The Phillips Law Group AZ treated it as such. Their staff, specifically Mr Juan Roque was very professional, courteous and most importantly very informative. Mr Roque's attentive service was phenomenal and I highly recommend this firm!
