Cordarone and Bradycardia

Although Cordarone® (amiodarone hydrochloride) can be an effective medication for treating certain irregular heartbeats, it is not appropriate for some people. For example, people who have a very slow heart rate (bradycardia) should not take Cordarone.
 
As with other antiarrhythmia medicines, Cordarone can worsen your existing heart rhythm problem or cause a new heart rhythm problem. It is important to let your healthcare provider know if you experience a fast, slow, or irregular heartbeat during Cordarone treatment. Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you might have.
