Were you looking for information about Digoxin? Digoxen is a common misspelling of digoxin.
If you have congestive heart failure (CHF) or a type of irregular heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation, your healthcare provider may prescribe digoxin (Lanoxin®). By blocking a certain enzyme in the body, digoxin helps to increase the efficiency of the heart. This medicine is available as tablets, an oral liquid (elixir), and injections.
If your body does not effectively remove digoxin from the blood, it may result in highly toxic digoxin levels. Digoxin toxicity can occur even with normal use of the drug, so make sure to seek immediate medical care if you develop any symptoms of this problem, such as blurred vision, vomiting, or confusion.
