Description of Lanoxicaps
Brand Name(s): Digitek, Lanoxicaps, Lanoxin
Generic Name Digoxin
What are digoxin tablets or capsules?
DIGOXIN (Lanoxin®, Lanoxicaps®) is a cardiac glycoside that can help a weakened heart to function properly. Digoxin increases the strength of the heart muscle, helps to maintain a normal heart rhythm, and helps to remove excess water from the body. Digoxin can relieve symptoms of congestive heart failure, a condition that reduces the ability of the heart to pump enough blood through the body. These symptoms include swelling of the feet and legs, difficulty breathing, and extreme tiredness or weakness. It can also help to regulate heart rhythm problems. Generic digoxin tablets are available, but not generic digoxin capsules.
What should my health care professional know before I receive digoxin?
They need to know if you have any of these conditions:
How should I take this medicine?
Take digoxin tablets or capsules by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Swallow the tablets or capsules with a drink of water. It is best to take digoxin on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before, or 2 hours after meals. Take your doses at regular intervals. Do not take your medicine more often than directed.
Contact your pediatrician or health care professional regarding the use of this medicine in children. Special care may be needed. Do not administer adult preparations to children.
Elderly patients over 65 years old may have a stronger reaction to this medicine and may need smaller doses.
What if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you can (if you only take one dose a day, not more than 12 hours since your dose was due). If it is almost time for your next dose, take only that dose. Do not take double or extra doses.
What drug(s) may interact with digoxin?
Tell your prescriber or health care professional about all other medicines you are taking, including non-prescription medicines, nutritional supplements, or herbal products. Also tell your prescriber or health care professional if you are a frequent user of drinks with caffeine or alcohol, if you smoke, or if you use illegal drugs. These may affect the way your medicine works. Check with your health care professional before stopping or starting any of your medicines.
What side effects may I notice from taking digoxin?
Side effects that you should report to your prescriber or health care professional as soon as possible:
Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your prescriber or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):
What should I watch for while taking digoxin?
Visit your prescriber or health care professional for regular checks on your progress. Do not stop taking your digoxin without your prescriber's advice, even if you feel better. Do not change the brand you are taking, other brands may affect you differently.
Check your heart rate (pulse) and blood pressure regularly while you are taking digoxin. Ask your prescriber or health care professional what your heart rate and blood pressure should be, and when you should contact him or her. Your prescriber or health care professional also may schedule regular blood tests and electrocardiograms to check your progress.
Digoxin tablets are easily confused with other look-alike tablets. This can have serious consequences. If you take other tablets that look similar, ask your pharmacist how to avoid mix-ups.
Watch your diet. Less digoxin may be absorbed from the stomach if you have a diet high in bran fiber.
If you are going to have surgery, tell your prescriber or health care professional that you are taking digoxin.
Do not take antacids, or treat yourself with non-prescription medicines for pain, allergies, coughs or colds, without advice from your prescriber or health care professional. You will be able to take some of these medicines if you space doses several hours apart.
Where can I keep my medicine?
Keep out of the reach of children in a container that small children cannot open.
Store at room temperature between 15 and 25 °C (59 and 77 °F). Protect from light. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date.
