Three patients who attempted suicide with massive digoxin overdoses are described. Peak plasma digoxin levels in the three patients reached 21, 8.2 and 6.2 ng/ml. The clinical condition of the patients was correlated with their plasma digoxon levels. Control of digitalis-induced arrhythmias was achieved with i.v. diphenylhydantoin.
