Novato resident, Yawn Molar was notified by a Costco pharmacist about the recall of the generic heart drug Digitek.
Yawn was prescribed the pill last November to treat an irregular heartbeat. He told his doctor about some side effects, including dizziness and vision changes.
If you're taking Digitek, a local pharmacist recommends that you ask your doctor for another name brand.
