Digoxin for Atrial Fibrillation
How Well It Works
Digoxin may be used along with other medicines to treat atrial fibrillation. Digoxin alone may not adequately control heart rate in people with active lifestyles.
Digoxin may improve symptoms of atrial fibrillation by:
- Slowing the heart rate.
- Strengthening heart contractions in people who have heart failure.
