Digoxin Drug Interactions

Sucralfate
Sucralfate can bind to digoxin in the stomach, decreasing the amount of digoxin absorbed into the body. This potential interaction may be avoided by taking digoxin two hours prior to sucralfate. Talk to your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Telmisartan
Telmisartan may increase the amount of digoxin in the blood, potentially increasing your risk for serious digoxin side effects. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your digoxin levels with a simple blood test if you take these medications together.
 
Tetracycline
Tetracycline may increase the absorption of digoxin into the bloodstream, potentially increasing your risk for serious digoxin side effects. Your healthcare provider may decide to monitor your digoxin levels using a simple blood test, especially when you start or stop taking tetracycline.
