Lanoxin , also medically known as digoxin, is a cardiac glycoside which is used in the treatment of heart failure and abnormal heart rhythms. This type of medication helps the heart work more efficiently and it helps control your heart rate as well.
Lanoxin comes in the form of an oral tablet, capsule or liquid. It is usually taken once a day, depending on the prescription your doctor has given. Never take more or less than what is indicated on your prescription label.
Some of the common side effects Lanoxin users may experience when taking this drug include dizziness, lightheadedness, blurred vision, rash, irregular heartbeat and drowsiness. If you experience more severe side effects, contact a medical professional for assistance.
Occasionally, Lanoxin may be prescribed to treat angina (chest pain) or may be prescribed to patients after theyve experienced a heart attack. It may be prescribed for other purposes as well, as directed by your doctor.
