What does this mean?
Since too much or too little digoxin may cause serious problems, this alert should be taken seriously. If you are using digoxin tablets, check your bottle to find out who made your tablets.

Too much digoxin can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness, low blood pressure, and low heart rate. If you experience any of these symptoms, please contact your doctor immediately. If you have any other questions about digoxin, please follow up with your doctor or pharmacist.
