FDA Recall of Digitek
Morristown, NJ -- April 25, 2008 -- Actavis Totowa LLC, a United States manufacturing division of the international generic pharmaceutical company Actavis Group, is initiating a Class I nationwide recall of DigitekŪ (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. (See:FDA Recall of Digitek.)
What is Digitek or Digitalis?
DigitekŪ 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. FDA has received many reports of serious illnesses and injuries regarding digitalis toxicity. (See:Digitek Overdose Side Effects) The voluntary all lot recall is due to the possibility that tablets with double the appropriate thickness may have been commercially released. These Digitek tablets may contain two times the approved level of active ingredient than it appropriate.
