Congestive Heart Failure Home > Digoxin 0.125 Mg

Before prescribing digoxin (Lanoxin®), your healthcare provider will take into consideration several factors when determining your dosage amount. Some of these factors include your age, the medical condition being treated, and other medications you are taking.
 
Most adults taking this medication for heart failure will be maintained on a dosage between 0.125 mg and 0.25 mg to achieve a target digoxin blood level. Your healthcare provider may adjust your dosage (no more often than every two weeks) based on how you respond to the medication and your digoxin blood level. If the blood level of digoxin becomes too high, it can cause digoxin toxicity and lead to potentially dangerous complications.
