 4  CHF None as far as I can tell. I was put on digoxin and spironlactone (water pill) at the same time when I was diagnosed with CHF. Due to the water pill I peed 11 lbs of water the first 24 hours I was on it, and could finally sleep flat and not sitting up on 4 pillows. it was glorious to curl up in a little ball with no irregular heart beat and just sleep! one thing i learned is that it is imperative to drink enough water while on digoxin, as if you don't, it can turn into a poison and you can slip into a coma, especially if exercise is involved on say a hot day. so drink plenty of water plus other liquids. blood tests to check your digoxin blood levels are also imperative, it must be at a certain level to work effectively. My blood levels have just gotten too low and I have been having heart problems again. F 56 3 years

 2  Heart problems Mom was given Lanoxin, within 4 days she had stomach problems, nausea, diarrhea, was anxious/nervous and was mental slow. It took 2 weeks of contacting the doctor and a week in the hospital to convince the doctors that her problem was caused by the pill - not age. Within 2 days of stopping the pill, she started to feel better. The doctors said it created a toxic gas in her stomach causing the nausea and not eating feeling. At first the doctors said she was just not wanting to eat but.. Note: Please ensure you take care of your elderly family members and listen to their comments. Get to know what medications they are on, what is changed and why and help them find a solution to their health problems. F 91 4 weeks

LANOXIN  (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)
