Digitalis toxicity is a complication of the digitalis therapy. It could occur also due to the patient taking in a much larger dose of the drug than prescribed. The general symptoms of Digitalis toxicity are typically gastro-intestinal, neurologic and non-specific cardiac type manifestations that are strikingly similar to the clinical picture of primary Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) making a diagnosis of chronic digitalis toxicity in particular relatively difficult. Serum digoxin measurement is… Expand
