I have just started taking DIGOXIN ( 62.5 micrograms) as an additional to BISOPOLO ( 10mg ) to slow my heart rate.
I am concerned by a medical reports that there is an increased risk of death for patients with specific heart problems using DIGOXIN
Any one else using or have used this drug, or any knowledge about it?
After being on Propafenone for just 48 hrs went into supraventricular trachycardia (yet again) I was admitted to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary for 3 days observation.
The Propafenone was stopped and was given the choice between the drug Digoxin or an ablation.
I choose to give Digoxin a try.
Two years ago I was diagnosed as having atrial Flutter/Proxysmal atrial Fibrillation, left Anterior fascicular block and Persistent left superior vena cava which makes it very difficult getting a catheter into the heart for an ablation.
I take 8.5 mg warfarin
PS Digoxin seems to work for me (even went to the gym today)
