digoxin [Lanoxin™, Toloxin™]

Digoxine is a medication that slows the heartbeat and assists the heart when it contracts. It is especially given to people suffering from arrhythmia, like atrial fibrillation, or to those with a weaker heart.

This medication is usually taken once per day. ALWAYS respect the prescribed dosage.



The undesirable effects often reported are nausea and dizziness. It is important to be vigilant to important nausea, vomiting, vision troubles (blurry vision or the appearance of a yellow halo) and weakening muscles when using digozine because it can be a sign that its concentration in the blood is too high.
