Digoxin Tablets

Digoxin is a cardiac glycoside used to treat various types of heart disease, such as congestive heart failure, some types of heart rhythm disorders, and dilated cardiomyopathy. The effect of digoxin is to slow the heart rate and increase heart muscle contraction.

Dosage and Administration:

The usual dose of digoxin in dogs is 0.0025-0.005mg/pound every 12 hours. The usual dose in cats is 0.0015-0.002mg/pound every 12 hours. Digoxin should be given on an empty stomach.

Caution: The elixir is available in two strengths; 0.05mg/ml and 0.15mg/ml.

Side effects:

Side effects of digoxin in dogs and cats may include loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, incoordination, depression and abnormal heart rhythms.

Special precautions
:
This medication has a very narrow therapeutic range. The dosage should not be adjusted without consulting the veterinarian since serious side effects or death could occur. The medication should be used with caution in animals with digitalis overdose, kidney disease, ventricular fibrillation, and other heart or lung disorders. Use caution when giving to animals with hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, or electrolyte abnormalities. Medications such as antacids, and metoclopramide may decrease the effects of digoxin. Medications such as chemotherapy drugs, diuretics including furosemide or HCTZ, or corticosteroids such as prednisone may increase the risk of digitalis toxicity. Laxatives, quinidine, verapamil, tetracycline and erythromycin may also increase the risk of digitalis toxicity. Always tell your veterinarian and pharmacist what other medications your pet is taking.

Storage:

Keep this medication in the container it came in, tightly closed. Store medication at room temperature, away from excess heat, light and moisture. Do not store in the bathroom.
