Does digoxin cause problems with other medicines?

ANSWER

Doctors often prescribe digoxin along with other types of medicines such as diuretics, an ACE inhibitor or an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), and a beta-blocker for heart failure. If you have more side effects after taking your medications together, talk with your doctor. You may need to change the times you take each medication. If you take the cholesterol-lowering drugs colestipol (Colestid), Questran, or Questran Light (cholestyramine), take them at least 2 hours after you take digoxin. And if you take any over-the-counter medications, check with your doctor, since they can affect digoxin, too.
