    Digoxin Kern Pharma

    Cardiac Glycoside. Digoxin 0.25 mg.
    TABS.: 50 x 25 mg. The dose must be
    tailored individ. for each pt. accord. to
    age, lean bdy. wt. and renal func.
    Adults, child. over 10 yrs: Rapid oral
    admin.: 0.75 - 1.5 mg as a single dose.
    Slow oral admin.: 0.25 - 0.75 mg dly for
    1 week followed by a suitable mainten.
    dose. See lit. Children < 10 yrs.: See lit.
    Card. fail.: tmt. of chron. card. fail. where the
    principal cause is syst. dysfunc. The greatest
    therap. benefit is achieved in pts. with
    ventric. dilatation.Card. fail. accompanied
    by atrial fibril. Supraventric. arrhythmias:
    tmt. of certain supraventric. arrhythmias,
    particul. atrial fibril. and flutter, where its
    principal beneficial effect is to reduce the
    ventric. rate.
    C/I: Hypersens. or to other digitalis
    glycosides; Pts. with intermit. compl. heart
    block or 2nd –deg. AV block, especially if
    there is a hist. of stokes-adams synd. Pts.
    with arrhyth. caused by card. glycos. intox.
    Pts. with supraventr. arrhyth. assoc. with an
    accessory atrioventr. pathway, as in WPW
    synd. , unless the electrophys. character. of
    the accessory pathway and any possible
    harmful eff. of Digoxin on these character.
    have been evaluated. Known or suspect.
    accessory pathway to be present and there
    is no hist. of prev. supravent. arrhyth. Pts.
    with ventr. tachycar. or ventric. fibril. Pts.
    with hypertroph. obstruct. cardiomyopat.,
    unless there is concom. atrial fibril. and HF,
    but even then caution should be exercised.

    Lanoxin

    Cardiac Glycoside. Digoxin 0.5 mg / 2 ml, 0.05 mg/ml.

    adjusted for each pt. accord. to age,
    lean bdy-wt. and renal func.
    AMPS: 1 x 0.5 mg/2 ml. The dosage
    should be individ. adjusted for each pt.
    accord. to age, lean bdy-wt. and renal
    func.
    Congest heart fail., myocardit., atrial
    fibrill. and/or flutter, SVT.
    C/I: Intermit. complete heart block, 2nd
    degree AV block (specific. In history
    Stokes-Adams attacks), arrhythm. due
    to cardiac glycoside intox.
    Ventric. tachycard. or ventric. fibril.
    Hypertroph. obstruc. cardiomyopathy,
    unless there is concom. atrial fibril. & HF
    but even then caution should be exercised
    if digoxin is to be used. Pt. known to be
    hypersens. to digoxin, other digitalis
    glycos. or to any component of the prepar.
    SVT arrhythm. associate. with an accessory
    AV pathway, WPW synd., unless the
    electrophys. characteristics of the
    accessory pathway and any possible
    deleterious effect of digoxin on these
    character. have been evaluated. If an
    accessory pathway is known or suspect. to
    be present and there is no history of
    previous SV arrhythm.
