Digoxin Indications

Digoxin (Lanoxin®) is a prescription drug approved for the treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF) and atrial fibrillation. It is approved for use in adults, children, and infants.
 
Healthcare providers may also occasionally recommend this drug for "off-label," or unapproved, reasons. At this time, there are several off-label uses (indications) for digoxin, including the following:
 
  • Use after a myocardial infarction (MI, or heart attack)
  • Treating certain complications of ventricular septal defects (a type of heart defect)
  • Treating other types of heart arrhythmias.
