Digoxin: Digoxin is a cardiac glycoside derived from the foxglove. It is used for rate control in patients with atrial fibrillation, although it is not a first-line treatment. It can also be used for rate control for other arrhythmias. It is also occasionally used to increase cardiac contractility in patients with heart failure. It can be proarrhythmic and can cause visual changes. Talk to your doctor.
