About Lanoxin Tablet 10's

Lanoxin Tablet 10's belongs to a group of medicines called cardiac glycosides used to treat irregular heartbeats and manage the symptoms of heart failure. Heart failure is a chronic condition in which the heart is unable to pump blood as effectively as it should. Irregular heartbeat is a condition in which your heart beats irregularly, too fast or too slow.

Lanoxin Tablet 10's contains digoxin, i.e. cardiac glycosides that help to increase the output force of the heart and reduces the rate of heart contractions. Lanoxin Tablet 10's works on the heart muscle directly and increases the force with which heart muscle contracts with each heartbeat. Thereby, it makes heart efficient in pumping blood around the body and slows down the rate at which heartbeats.

Lanoxin Tablet 10's is available in both injection and oral dosage forms. A doctor or nurse gives the injection. Lanoxin Tablet 10's in oral form is taken irrespective of food daily at the same time as prescribed by your doctor. Do not crush, chew or break it. Some people may experience common side effects like diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, abnormal heartbeat or skin rash. Most of these side effects of Lanoxin Tablet 10's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to Lanoxin Tablet 10's or any other medicines, please tell your doctor. Pregnant or breastfeeding women are advised to consult a doctor before taking Lanoxin Tablet 10's. Regular blood tests are recommended by your doctor while taking Lanoxin Tablet 10's to monitor the amount of Lanoxin Tablet 10's in the bloodstream as its toxicity can lead to several forms of heart rhythm disturbances, vomiting, nausea and visual disturbances. If you have beriberi disease caused due to vitamin B1 deficiency, malabsorption syndrome (unable to absorb minerals from food) or any lung or kidney disease, please inform your doctor before taking Lanoxin Tablet 10's so that the dose may be adjusted or an alternate medicine may be prescribed accordingly.
