Digoxin comes from the foxgloves plant known as Digitalis lanata. It belongs to a class of medications called cardiac glycosides. It works by increasing the force of contraction of the heart muscle and slowing down the heart rate. This helps improve the efficiency of the heart’s pumping action and can be beneficial in conditions such as heart failure and certain arrhythmias.

It is often prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that may include other medications, lifestyle changes, and management of underlying conditions.

Warnings and precautions for digoxin
- Digoxin works by affecting the levels of certain electrolytes, primarily potassium and magnesium, in the body. Low levels of these electrolytes can increase the risk of digoxin toxicity. Therefore, it is crucial to maintain a balanced diet, adhere to any dietary restrictions provided by your healthcare provider, and have regular blood tests to monitor your electrolyte levels while taking digoxin
- Digoxin can affect thyroid function and may worsen symptoms in individuals with thyroid disorders. It is important to inform your healthcare provider if you have any thyroid conditions or if you experience any changes in your thyroid function while taking digoxin
- Digoxin is primarily eliminated from the body through the kidneys. Impaired kidney function can affect the clearance of digoxin from the body, leading to an increased risk of toxicity. If you have any kidney problems, your healthcare provider may need to adjust your digoxin dosage accordingly
- Make sure to inform your doctor about any other medications, over-the-counter drugs, or supplements you are taking. Some medications can cause adverse effects with digoxin and either decrease or increase its effectiveness. This includes herbal remedies, antacids, certain antibiotics, and antiarrhythmic medications
Interactions with other drugs
Here are some important drug interactions to be aware of when taking digoxin:
- Diuretics, also known as water pills, are medications commonly used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. Some diuretics, such as thiazide diuretics (e.g., hydrochlorothiazide), can cause low potassium levels (hypokalemia), which may increase the risk of digoxin toxicity. Low potassium levels can enhance the effects of digoxin on the heart, leading to an irregular heartbeat or other serious cardiac problems. It is essential to monitor potassium levels regularly when taking digoxin with diuretics
- ACE inhibitors (e.g.lisinopril) and angiotensin receptor blockers (e.g. losartan) are commonly prescribed for high blood pressure and heart failure. These medications can increase the risk of high potassium levels (hyperkalemia) when taken with digoxin. Hyperkalemia can also lead to serious cardiac issues. Regular monitoring of potassium levels is crucial when combining digoxin with these medications
- Beta-blockers are often used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and certain arrhythmias. When taken with digoxin, beta-blockers can enhance the effects of digoxin on the heart, increasing the risk of side effects such as bradycardia (slow heart rate) or heart block. Close monitoring of heart rate and symptoms is necessary when combining digoxin with beta-blockers
- Calcium channel blockers, such as verapamil and diltiazem, are commonly prescribed for high blood pressure, angina, certain arrhythmias and other heart problems. These medications can also enhance the effects of digoxin on the heart, leading to potentially serious side effects. Regular monitoring of heart rate and symptoms is important when taking digoxin with calcium channel blockers
- Quinidine is an antiarrhythmic medication that is sometimes used in combination with digoxin to treat certain arrhythmias. However, the combination of quinidine and digoxin can increase the risk of digoxin toxicity. Close monitoring of digoxin levels and symptoms is necessary when taking these medications together
- Potassium-sparing diuretics, such as spironolactone and eplerenone, can increase potassium levels in the body. When combined with digoxin, which can also raise potassium levels, there is an increased risk of hyperkalemia. Regular monitoring of potassium levels is crucial when taking digoxin with potassium-sparing diuretics
- Some antibiotics, such as erythromycin and clarithromycin, can increase the concentration of digoxin in the blood, leading to a higher risk of digoxin toxicity. It is important to inform your healthcare provider about any antibiotics you are taking while on digoxin to prevent potential interactions
- Antacids that contain aluminium or magnesium, such as Maalox and Mylanta, can decrease the absorption of digoxin in the body, leading to reduced effectiveness. It is recommended to take digoxin at least two hours before or after taking antacids to prevent this interaction
Side effects of digoxin
Common side effects of digoxin may include nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, headache, dizziness, and vision changes. It is important to contact your healthcare provider if you experience any severe or persistent side effects.
Some individuals may have an allergic reaction to digoxin. Signs of an allergic reaction may include rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, or trouble breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.
