An Introduction to Lanoxin Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Lanoxin® (digoxin) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.

Common Side Effects of Lanoxin

Lanoxin has been studied extensively in clinical trials. In these studies, the side effects that occurred in a group of people taking Lanoxin were documented and then compared to those that occurred in a similar group of people taking a placebo (a "sugar pill" with no active ingredients).
 
In these studies, the most common Lanoxin side effects included:
 
  • Dizziness -- in up to 4.9 percent of people
  • Nausea -- up to 3.2 percent
  • Diarrhea -- up to 3.2 percent
  • Headache -- up to 3.2 percent
