Can Azithromycin Interfere With Cordarone?

Cordarone® (amiodarone hydrochloride) is a medicine approved to treat potentially life-threatening heart rhythm problems. Although this can be an effective treatment for many people, it may not be safe for use in those who are taking certain medications.
 
Azithromycin (Zithromax®) is one of the drugs that can interfere with Cordarone. Combining Cordarone with azithromycin may increase the risk for potentially serious heart rhythm problems. If you must use these medicines together, your healthcare provider will need to closely monitor you.
