Skin Reactions With Amiodarone

If you develop any type of skin rash while taking amiodarone (Cordarone®, Pacerone®, Nexterone®), contact your healthcare provider for immediate medical treatment. Clinical trials have shown that amiodarone can cause life-threatening skin rashes known as Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN).
 
Other possible skin reactions that may occur with amiodarone include:
 
  • Skin irritation
  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Warmth
  • Swelling at the injection site.
 
In most cases, however, side effects of amiodarone tend to be minor and easy to treat. If you are using this medicine and experience anything that "just does not seem right," let your healthcare provider know right away.
