Unfortunately, all prescription drugs pose the risk of side effects. Even natural remedies do for that matter, but more so, to a much lesser extent since your body doesn't necessarily recognize them as toxins in the same way it does with synthetic pills.

Also, my findings state that there are potentially unsafe interactions between Lopressor and Digoxin. Quoted below are the precautions you should be aware of:

"Using metoprolol (Lopressor) together with digoxin may slow your heart rate and lead to increased side effects. Contact your doctor if you experience nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, diarrhea, confusion, seizures, visual changes, fatigue, irregular heartbeats, and abnormally fast or slow heartbeats. If your doctor does prescribe these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment or special test to safely use both medications. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor."

I would definitely consider looking into natural alternatives, but in the meantime, you may want to change meds if this interaction is becoming a problem...

Hi,

My dad started taking Digoxin 7 days ago for a-fib. Today he has developed a rash on his feet. Is this a normal side effect? The only other medication he is on is Lasix.
