Cordioxil review





Cordioxil is primarily a heart medication used to treat heart conditions including heart failure, atrial fluttering, and atrial fibrillation. This is a medication that has been purified and modified from the parts of the foxglove plant. Regardless of its medieval origin; its use is almost futuristic. Cordioxil is used to control the electrical impulses of the heart to make the heart rate more controlled and stable. It slows down the electricity in the AV node (the area of tissue between the atria and ventricles of the heart) so the heart pumps slower and is filled with more blood.

This medication is particularly sensitive to other medications. Since it is very delicate, other chemicals in the body sometimes react badly with it. Patients with low potassium levels are at greater risk for toxicity and a negative reaction to the medication. Some medications that researchers know react badly with Cordioxil are: antimalarial medication, other heart medication, Hydroxychloroquine, verapamil, erythromycin, amiodarone, and epinephrine, which is commonly used in anesthetics. To be safer, it is better to discuss all the medications, over the counter or other prescription medications you are taking so that your doctor can adjust the dose if he needs to. As previously stated, Cordioxil is a delicate medication. It might react badly with many different things.

It is important to disclose your entire medical history before taking any new medication. A previous illness or a vitamin you are regularly taking might interfere with the Cordioxil treatment. It is important to tell your doctor all the previous operations you have had, especially on the liver, kidney and heart. It’s also important that you reveal to them all the illnesses you’ve previously had. Kidney disease and thyroid disease are especially dangerous because they make your body more sensitive to Cordioxil.

This medication is classified as a FDA pregnancy category C. This means that the researchers don’t know if the medication may be harmful to pregnant women and their fetuses. To be safe, please inform your doctor if you are pregnant or if you become pregnant during the course of the Cordioxil treatment. This also means that they do not know if the medication is passed on through breast milk. It might be better if nursing mothers stop breastfeeding while on the medication.

Sometimes medications can cause discomfort in the patient because it changes the body’s rhythm, or the body’s chemicals to make it better. Some of the common side effects from Cordioxil are: nausea, vomiting, enlarged breasts in males, stomach problems, confusion, depression, and problems sleeping. These are mostly negligible side effects. However, there are also some serious side effects that might happen. These include: amnesia, delirium, heart failure, heart blockage. If any of these serious side effects occur, do not hesitate to go to a doctor immediately. If you are allergic to Cordioxil it will manifest in rashes, hives, fainting, extreme headaches, varied and irregular heartbeats, abnormal vision, hallucinations or psychotic behavior. If any of these symptoms manifest please see a doctor at once. Dioxin is usually given once daily in 200-250 mg doses. It can also be injected in .25 mgs doses. It is marketed under the names Lanoxin, Digitek, and Lanoxicaps. It is also known as Digitalis. Make sure that you follow the doctor’s prescription as you take this medication. Take only what he tells you to, no more and no less.
