Yes my mother was on digoxin (lanoxin) for twenty years and didn t have any problems the drug worked perfect, the she had a episode and at the hospital the heart doctor told her he was putting her on a different drug that digoxin is no longer available , ever since then she s had more episodes with the new drug diltiazem, which doesn t seem to work as well.
