Why is digoxin given only for 5 days a week?

Digoxin has a long half life. Hence to prevent cumulative toxicity, it is given for 5 days every week. The next course of digoxin is started after a gap of 2 days. Because of its peculiar dosage schedule, it is easy to ask for intake of digoxin by carefully taking the treatment history.
