I nurse a 98 year old lady who has recently stopped digoxin, her behaviour has changed, seeing people/animals, shaking, fear, are these normal
Did she stop it on advice of dr, or just because she doesn't want it? Her symptoms are the symptoms of digoxin toxicity, not stopping it. You can expect that whatever the reason that she was taking it will come back. Since you are the nurse caring for him, I have to ask, is she her own responsible party or does she have someone appointed to take care of her affairs and medical care? If she isn't her own responsible party, she can't make the decision to stop a med without that other person being told. At any rate, her doc needs to be called and advised of everything that is going on, also.
