Were you looking for information about Digoxin Toxicity? Digoxin toxcity is a common misspelling of digoxin toxicity.
If you are taking digoxin (Lanoxin®) to treat congestive heart failure (CHF) or atrial fibrillation, it is important to be able to identify the possible signs of digoxin toxicity. This potentially dangerous complication occurs when digoxin is not properly removed from the body. As a result, digoxin accumulates in the body to a toxic level. This can happen with a large ingestion of digoxin, as well as with normal use of the drug.
Notify your healthcare provider immediately if you notice any symptoms of digoxin toxicity, such as blurred vision, confusion, or vomiting.
