    Default Update on My Dad's Health

    Looks like we may have found out why my Dad was so sick. He
    is one of the patients involved in a drug recall for the drug Digitek. He was taking this medication that was twice the thickness it was supposed to be for his heart. He was getting toxic effects from the medicine. Apparently, the correct dosage pills were being given to him in the hospital, but he would come home and that was the bad batch of medicine he was taking--the batch he had at home. He lost 45 lbs. in this ordeal. He is, I am happy to say, out of the nursing home. Class action lawsuits are now flying about this Digitek recall.

    DrinkofWtr, what a terrible experience that must've been for your dad. I'm so glad he's out of the nursing home. That's another example of how many medical (and medication) mistakes there are. Such a shame.

    Mixed News :lol:
    I am happy that your father is going to be O.K. and that there is a class action suit. I am sorry that he had to suffer from this negligence in the first place. I hope he continues to recover!

    Peace and Blessings
