I have been making phone calls all morning and am getting not much of anywhere. I did find out that my mom has been on this Digitek at least since July 20, 2007. I also know that they are doing a recall of up to two years. They don't know when this started happening with the medications. I don't know if she has been on this medication for longer than this. I have to call the doctor back in the morning and talk to the office manager to get some answers there. I want to know when she had her heart checked and they said it was ok. It was not enlarged at the time as far as we know. The man with the pharmacutical company was giving me a list of what the medications side effects were. He said it would cause irregular heart beat...well my god that is what she was taking it for to begin with and cardiac arrythmia is what killed her. I am also waiting on a phone call from the coroner himself to see if I can get some answers as to the tox screen from her autopsy and even if this medication would show up on a tox screen or would you have to be specifically looking for it. I contacted a lawyer to get some legal advice as to what I need to do next. I just don't know but if there is even a remote chance that this medication is responsible then I want to know and someone has to be responsible for taking my mother from my life when I need her here. I don't blame the doctors at all because they didn't know that this medication was bad. But I don't even know if the medication she was on was of the bad medication because we got rid of her meds when she died so now how do we go about finding out? I don't know but my head is a mess right now. What do you guys think? What would you do if this were your situation? ~Angela

He is one of the best movement disorder secialists in the midwest. I know he is extremely busy on the lecture circuit now and in fact not taking new patients there is a huge waiting list for him.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
