Also known as digitalis, Digoxin has been used to treat heart failure for over 200 years. It slows and steadies the heart rate in some people and helps the heart to pump more efficiently.
Too much Digoxin can result in nausea, loss of appetite, and an unusual heart rate. If you experience these symptoms, do not stop taking your tablets. Talk to your Nurse or doctor.
Since newer drugs have become available Digoxin has not been used as commonly. However, it is used with heart failure patients who have certain irregular heart rhythms.
