avoiding errors with digoxin (Toloxin, etc) prescriptions

You're on the front lines for avoiding errors with digoxin (Toloxin, etc) prescriptions.

Accidentally giving too much digoxin can lead to "dig toxicity"...nausea, vomiting, heart rhythm problems, blurred vision, and death.

Double-check strengths on digoxin Rxs. Entering digoxin 0.125 mg as 0.25 mg means the patient would get twice the intended amount.
