Recently some of the tablets were found to contain twice the amount of active ingredient. Digoxin overdose can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, cardiac instability, bradycardia and death. Mylan Pharmaceutical has recalled the product in response to several reports of illness and injury from patients taking Digitek.
