What is Digoxin?
Digoxin, commonly available as Lanoxin, belongs to a family of drugs known as cardiac glycosides that help maintain a strong and consistent heartbeat. These drugs aid in controlling heart failure and arrhythmias by acting on sodium and potassium, two minerals in your body that regulate your heartbeat.
After evaluating the severity of your condition, the Lanoxin dose and frequency will be determined. Do not take more than the prescribed dose because overdosing can be life-threatening.
