Digoxin is a drug that acts to strengthen your heart contractions. It
also regulates heart rhythm and is used to control heart rate in certain
types of arrhythmias. If taken in excess, Digoxin may cause excessive
slowing of heart rate.
Symptoms of Digoxin excess include:
- loss of appetite, nausea or vomiting
- visual disturbance (blurring, yellow or green tinge),
- increased shortness of breath, increased fatigue or swelling of ankles
- Sudden weight gain of more than three pounds.
If these symptoms occur, contract your physician.
Take this medication at a regular time each day. Take a missed dose within
12 hours but do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. Report
a very high, low or irregular heart rate to your doctor.
