digoxin ↔ metolazone

Applies to: digoxin, metolazone

MONITOR: Although diuretics and digitalis glycosides are frequently and appropriately used together, diuretic-induced hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia may predispose patients on digitalis to arrhythmias.

MANAGEMENT: Digoxin, potassium and magnesium levels should be followed closely. Hypokalemia and hypomagnesemia should be treated appropriately. Digitalis dose adjustments may be required. Patients should be advised to notify their physicians if they experience signs of possible digoxin toxicity or electrolyte disturbances, such as weakness, lethargy, muscle pains or cramps, nausea, anorexia, visual disturbances, or irregular heartbeats.
