What is digoxin?
Digoxin is a prescription medication used to treat heart failure and irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias).
Heart failure is a common condition in which the heart is no longer able to adequately pump blood through the body. While heart failure is a serious medical condition that does not have a cure, it can be managed quite effectively through prescription medications like digoxin and lifestyle changes like increasing your exercise and improving your diet. With these interventions - medicine and lifestyle changes - the prognosis for heart failure is far less dire than its name would suggest.
