Digoxin pills have been used to treat heart failure for years. They improve heart function by making the heart beat stronger and also may help to correct hormonal imbalance that makes heart failure worse. Patients with heart failure breathe more easily and feel better as a result.
Studies show that among patients with heart failure, those taking digoxin go to the hospital less often than patients who are not taking this type of medicine. However, not all people with heart failure need digoxin.
