DIGOXIN
900

Digoxin is widely prescribed for the treatment of Congestive heart failure and disturbances of cardiac rhythm. Equilibrium of serum and tissue Digoxin levels occurs at 6 to 8 hours, hence blood specimens should be drawn atleast 6 to 8 hours after drug administration. The drug has a narrow therapeutic window which makes monitoring therapy mandatory. Symptoms of toxicity mimic Cardiac arrhythmias for which the drug is originally prescribed.
