Congestive cardiac failure is a heart condition caused by the heart muscles’ inability to pump enough blood. As a result, blood accumulates in the ventricles and atriums of the heart, resulting in backward flow. This exerts pressure on the veins that bring blood to the heart’s chambers from the lungs and other parts of the body, resulting in breathing difficulty and swelling in the face and legs.  If not treated properly, the cardiac muscles can become weaker over time due to which the heart may fail to pump blood efficiently. This can hamper the blood supply to vital organs of the body, putting patients at risk of serious life-threatening complications. Lanoxin makes it easier for the heart to pump blood. The main ingredient of Lanoxin is digoxin, which is a cardiac glycoside. It produces a specific effect on the myocardial tissue (heart muscle) and reduces the symptoms of cardiac failure by increasing left ventricular ejection fraction. It works by regulating the movement of sodium and potassium ions inside the cells of the cardiac muscles, thus improving the contractility of the heart. This increases the amount of blood ejected from the left ventricle during each heartbeat. This action of digoxin improves the flow of blood through the chambers of the heart as well as the lungs and other parts of the body and provides relief from the symptoms of congestive cardiac failure. Patients diagnosed with congestive cardiac failure are usually advised to use Lanoxin regularly to support normal heart functions and avoid complications.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmia is a medical term for irregular heartbeat and rhythm. It occurs due to dysfunctions associated with the SA or AV node in the heart, which generates and carries electrical impulses that regulate the heart rate and rhythm. These dysfunctions can cause the heart to beat too fast or too slow or develop an irregular rhythm. Lanoxin can be used to stabilize heart rate and rhythm, particularly atrial fibrillation. It helps to normalize abnormal heart rhythm and slows down the heart rate. Lanoxin is a cardiac glycoside that helps correct an irregular heartbeat and restore the normal rhythm by controlling the ventricular response rate. This increases the force with which the cardiac muscles contract during every heartbeat, increasing the heart’s efficiency in pumping blood, ultimately improving blood circulation throughout the body.

Is Lanoxin a blood thinner?

No, Lanoxin is not a blood thinner. It does not directly interfere with the mechanisms involved in blood clotting. However, it may still lower the risk of blood clots, protecting you against a heart attack or stroke.

Does Lanoxin lower blood pressure?

Lanoxin might lower blood pressure by improving the flow of blood through the chambers of the heart. Lanoxin’s blood pressure-lowering effect can be attributed to its anti-arrhythmic effect. It regulates the heart rate and rhythm and slows the electrical activities in the heart. This action of Lanoxin lowers the strain on the heart muscles, thereby reducing blood pressure.

Most side effects of Lanoxin resolve spontaneously over a period of time as the body adjusts to the effect of the medication. However, you must consult your doctor if the side effects are severe or persist for longer.

Some common side effects of Lanoxin include:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Skin rash
  • Visual impairment
  • Diarrhea
  • Dizziness

 

What is the best time to take digoxin?

Doctors usually recommend taking digoxin doses at night because it significantly reduces diastolic blood pressure in patients with congestive cardiac failure. This effect is particularly noted during overnight sleep.

The reduction in blood pressure is possibly caused by an increase in parasympathetic activity or a decrease in sympathetic activity. The decrease in diastolic pressure can ease the strain on the heart and improve the symptoms of congestive cardiac failure.

This is why patients are usually advised to take digoxin tablets before bedtime.

  • Are Lanoxin and digoxin the same?
    Digoxin is the primary medicinal compound in Lanoxin. Digoxin is the generic name, while Lanoxin is the brand name of the medication containing Digoxin.
  • Who should not take digoxin?
    People who have a history of allergy to digoxin should preferably avoid Lanoxin. In addition, one should avoid taking Lanoxin if they suffer from conditions such as: -Cardiomyopathy -Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome -Heart block -Pericarditis -Myocarditis -Recent history of a heart attack -Severe liver or kidney problems
  • Can I use Lenox during pregnancy or lactation?
    There is no adequate evidence to establish the safety of Lanoxin when used by women during pregnancy. Hence, this medicine should be avoided by pregnant people unless otherwise advised by their doctor. The treating doctor will determine the potential benefits and risks of this medication before prescribing it. Lanoxin is safe to use for breastfeeding women. Human studies suggest that digoxin does not pass into breast milk in significant amounts. Hence, it is not known to be harmful to the baby.
