- amiodarone, digoxin, toxicity
which of the two med is altered to relieve digoxin toxicity. Is amiodarone dose decreased or is digoxin decreased???
Logic says the Digoxin. If someone has to be on both the dig should be decreased by one third to one half. Also monitored closely.
Several years ago I was on digoxin and it became toxic to me, at first they tried readjusting the digoxin down, that didn't work for me so they just took me off digoxin. The doctors have tried to put me back on it a couple of times and for me it is a no go.
