Lanoxin is approved to treat:
It comes in the form of a tablet and an injection. When the tablet form is used, it is generally taken once a day, with or without food. The injection is usually administered by a healthcare provider. Most people tolerate Lanoxin well, but side effects may include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Lanoxin works by increasing the amount of calcium and potassium inside heart cells. This helps the heart contract more forcefully with each heartbeat so that it is more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. It also slows down the rate at which the heart beats.
