About Lanoxin

What Lanoxin is used for

This medicine is used for patients who have congestive heart failure. Heart failure, results when the heart cannot pump blood well enough to supply the body's needs. As a result, circulation becomes poor, and fluid can build up in the lungs and legs. This medicine can also be used in patients with fast heart rate or irregular heart rhythm. If you have a rapid or irregular heart beat, such as atrial fibrillation (sometimes called “a-fib”), digoxin can slow down and control your heart rate.

What Lanoxin does
