Dixina review





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

This medication is very sensitive to other medications. Being very delicate, chemicals in the body sometimes react badly with it. Patients with low potassium are at greater risk for toxicity and a negative reaction to the medication. Medications that researchers know react badly with Dixina are: antimalarial medication, other heart medication, Hydroxychloroquine, verapamil, erythromycin, amiodarone, and epinephrine, which is commonly used in anesthetics. It is best to discuss all the medications, over the counter or other prescription medications you are taking with your physician so that your physician can adjust the dose if need be. Dixina is a delicate medication and might react negatively with many different things.

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

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

Medications can cause discomfort in the patient. Some common side effects of Dixina are: nausea, vomiting, enlarged breasts in males, stomach problems, confusion, depression, and problems sleeping. Serious side effects include: amnesia, delirium, heart failure, heart blockage. If any of these serious side effects occur, go to a physician immediately. If you are allergic to Dixina, the symptoms will appear in the form of rashes, hives, fainting, extreme headaches, varied and irregular heartbeats, abnormal vision, hallucinations or psychotic behavior. If you experience any of these symptoms see a physician immediately. Dioxin is given once daily in 200-250 mg doses or injected in .25 mgs doses.
