Ensuring Safe Treatment With Lanoxin

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Lanoxin include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in tablet and injectable forms. The tablets are usually taken by mouth once a day. Children may be instructed to take the tablets more often than once a day.
     
  • Lanoxin injections are normally given by a trained healthcare provider, such as a nurse. The injections are usually given into a vein (intravenous, or IV), but may be given into a muscle (intramuscular or IM) on rare occasions.
     
  • You can take Lanoxin tablets with or without food. Try taking the medication with food if it bothers your stomach.
     
  • Try to take this medication at the same time each day to keep an even level in your blood.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
     

Dosing Information

The dosage of Lanoxin your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The condition being treated
  • Your weight
  • Your age
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
