    Lanoxin-125 tablets 125mcg Why do I need this medicine? Digoxin is used to treat heart failure and certain types of heart disease in which the heart rhythm is irregular, such as atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter.

    Digoxin works by giving better control over your heart rate and rhythm. It also improves the contraction power of your heart.
  • Directions

    How do I take this medicine? Take Digoxin exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.
