Digitalis is an older medication and is used for several heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation and congestive heart failure. There is an issue with toxicity if levels get too high, so some newer medications have replaced it’s use.Does that help answer your question?

Which newer medications?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Please do not charge me anymore. I had understood that you would answer my question for $5.00
Now all of sudden I am at $33.00
Do NOT charge me anything more as your web site does not make this extra charge clear.
Please remove me from your list and dont send me any more charges as I will reject them from my card.
Thanks***@******.***

cancel my account and do not charge me anything more or I will reject it from my card.
I though I was only going to have to pay $5.00
Your web site does not make this clear, on purpose I suppose.
DO NOT BILL ME FURTHER AS I WILL REJECT ANY FURTHER CHARGE.
REMOVE ME PERMANENTLY***@******.***
