Lanoxin is used in the treatment of congestive heart failure certain types of irregular heartbeat and other heart problems. It improves the strength and efficiency of your heart which leads to better circulation of blood and reduction of the uncomfortable swelling that is common in people with congestive heart failure. Lanoxin is usually prescribed along with a water pill (to help relieve swelling) and a drug called an ACE inhibitor (to further improve circulation). It belongs to a class of drugs known as digitalis glycosides.

Your doctor will determine your dosage based on several factors: (1) the disease being treated; (2) your body weight; (3) your kidney function; (4) your age; and (5) other diseases you have or drugs you are taking.

If you are receiving Lanoxin for the first time you may be rapidly digitalized (a larger first dose may be taken followed by smaller maintenance doses) or gradually digitalized (maintenance doses only) depending on your doctor's recommendation.

ADULTS

If your doctor feels you need rapid digitalization your first few doses may be given intravenously. You'll then be switched to tablets or capsules for long-term maintenance. A typical maintenance dose might be a 0.125 milligram or 0.25 milligram tablet once daily but individual requirements vary widely. The exact dose will be determined by your doctor based on your needs.

CHILDREN

Infants and young children usually have their daily dose divided into smaller doses; children over age 10 need adult dosages in proportion to body weight as determined by your doctor.
