NOTE: There have been recalls of other digoxin brands since this massive Digitek recall in the spring of 2008. As of May 13th, 2009 the most recent has been a recall on Caraco brand digoxin.

A class I recall is being issued on all Digitek (digoxin) tablets, which may contain twice the approved level of digoxin.The existence of double-strength pills pose a risk of digitalis toxicity, which can result in nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, cardiac instability, bradycardia and even death.

The metallic taste or smell could be from a stent.  Did he have a stent inserted?
