What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

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 also improve your ability to exercise. 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.
How to Use Lanoxin
Take Lanoxin by mouth with or without food, usually once daily or as directed by your doctor. If you are using the liquid form of Lanoxin, carefully measure the dose using the dropper provided by the manufacturer. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose. Your body may not absorb Lanoxin as well if you also eat foods that are high in fiber or if you take certain medications. Therefore, take Lanoxin at least 2 hours before or after eating food products that are high in fiber (such as bran). If you are also taking cholestyramine, colestipol, or psyllium, wait at least 2 hours after taking your digoxin dose before taking any of these products. If you are taking antacids, kaolin-pectin, milk of magnesia, metoclopramide, sulfasalazine, or aminosalicylic acid, take them as far apart from your digoxin dose as possible. Ask your pharmacist if you are not sure when to take any of your medications. The dosage of Lanoxin is based on your medical condition, age, body weight, laboratory tests, and response to treatment. Use Lanoxin regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same time each day. Do not stop taking Lanoxin without consulting your doctor. Some conditions may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
Before taking digoxin, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to similar drugs (such as digitoxin); or if you have any other allergies. Lanoxin may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Lanoxin, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,kidney problems, thyroid problems (underactive or overactive). Lanoxin may make you dizzy or blur your vision. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness or clear vision until you can do it safely. Limit alcoholic beverages. Talk to your doctor if you are using marijuana (cannabis). The balance of certain natural minerals in your blood (calcium, magnesium, potassium) can affect how Lanoxin works in your body. Certain drugs such as "water pills" (diuretics) may affect the normal balance of these minerals. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking a "water pill" or if you have a history of mineral imbalance. Ask your doctor or pharmacist whether you should take a nutritional supplement or follow a special diet. Before having surgery or certain procedures on your heart (such as electrical cardioversion), tell your doctor or dentist that you are using Lanoxin. Infants and children may be more sensitive to the effects of Lanoxin, especially the effects on the heartbeat. During pregnancy, Lanoxin should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Digoxin passes into breast milk. While there have been no reports of harm to nursing infants, consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
If you miss a dose of Lanoxin, take it as soon as you remember if it is within 12 hours of your scheduled dose. If it is more than 12 hours after your scheduled dose, skip the missed dose. Take your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up. If you miss more than 2 doses in a row, call your doctor to get a new dosing schedule.
See also How to Use section. Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Other medications can affect the removal of digoxin from your body, which may affect how digoxin works. Examples include azole antifungals (such as itraconazole), dronedarone, lapatinib, macrolide antibiotics (such as clarithromycin, erythromycin), propafenone, rifampin, St. John's wort, among others. Some products have ingredients that could worsen your heart failure. Tell your pharmacist what products you are using, and ask how to use them safely (especially cough-and-cold products, diet aids, or NSAIDs such as ibuprofen/naproxen).
Lanoxin Side Effects
What are Lanoxin side effects?
Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication.

Side effects, also known as adverse effects, are generally more likely to occur when starting treatment. Individuals may also experience side effects from Lanoxin as a result of an interaction with other medications.

The side effects of Lanoxin may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Lanoxin. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Lanoxin may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.
