Hissey Kientz, LLP Announces the Launch of Digitek Recall Help Web Site
The law firm of Hissey Kientz, LLP has announced the launch of its new website, Digitek Recall Help. Digitek is a form of the heart medication digoxin, which is used to treat patients with an irregular heartbeat or congestive heart failure. The drug’s manufacturer issued a nationwide Digitek recall after receiving several reports of injuries or illnesses among patients.
Hissey Kientz Concerned That Patients Have Not Been Provided With Crucial Information About Digitek Recall Despite the Dangers of Digoxin Toxicity
Hissey Kientz, LLP is concerned that despite a recent recall notice for the heart drug Digitek, the drug’s manufacturer has failed to provide any additional information on how long the heart medication was being improperly manufactured. According to a press release issued by the manufacturer, some Digitek tablets may have been manufactured at double their normal strength, meaning that patients could receive a double dose of the drug, leading to an overdose. A Digitek overdose could lead to severe side effects, including heart attack, stroke or death.
