 1  PERICARDITIS and ATRIAL FLUTTER 1) SEVERE PAIN IN BREASTS! as a male it was bizarre to have a double MAMMOGRAPHY, plus double ULTRASOUND to try to find the cause. Within 24hours of stopping DIGOXIN the pain subsided! ALSO: experienced uneven heart rate and felt like I was rocking in a boat when standing and thought I would pass out! I finally stayed in bed and curled in a fetal position since I felt so bad and COULD DO NOTHING ... PLUS I URINATED OVER AND OVER up to 15 times per day. Sometimes I would return from the bathroom and as I sat down, I WOULD HAVE TO GO AGAIN!!! For me, it was a horrible experience, because I was already so sick from Pericarditis ... and this drug made me feel even worse! I was so happy to get off of this medication .. because the side effects WENT AWAY when I stopped taking it! M 71

 5  Atrial fibrillation No side effects at all. I am taking this drug along with Metoprolol and they keep my heart rate down to a normal 70 or 80. My blood pressure is quite good, too. I feel that I could conceivably remain on these two medications for the rest of my life, except for my concern about taking dangerous medications in general. M 61 4 months
 5  Rapid uneven heart rate none lowered Hr FROM 100+ to 70 and steady M 69 2 years

DIGOXIN  (DIGOXIN):  Digoxin is used to treat heart failure, usually along with other medications. It is also used to treat certain types of irregular heartbeat (such as chronic atrial fibrillation). Treating heart failure may help maintain your ability to walk and exercise and may improve the strength of your heart. Treating an irregular heartbeat can decrease the risk for blood clots, an effect that may reduce your risk for a heart attack or stroke. Digoxin belongs to a class of medications called cardiac glycosides. It works by affecting certain minerals (sodium and potassium) inside heart cells. This reduces strain on the heart and helps it maintain a normal, steady, and strong heartbeat.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
