Drugmaker Caraco’s Digoxin Recalled

Posted by PKSD Law Firm on May 11, 2009 in Dangerous Drugs

The generic drug maker Caraco Pharmaceutical Laboratories Ltd. has recalled several of its Caraco brand of digoxin tablets. The tablets are being recalled because they may differ in size and could have more or less of the active ingredient, digoxin, than stated on the label. Digoxin is used to treat heart failure and abnormal rhythms.

Tablets with a higher dose of the drug than printed on the label may be toxic to people who take the product and who have kidney failure. Taking too much of the drug can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, abnormal heartbeat, and even death.
