Cordarone Drug Information

If you have a potentially life-threatening heart rhythm problem called ventricular arrhythmia, you may receive a medication called Cordarone® (amiodarone hydrochloride). This drug comes as a tablet that is usually taken once daily, although there may be some cases where it is taken twice a day. The initial doses will be given in a hospital, where you can be carefully monitored.
 
Although many people may be able to control their heartbeat with this drug, Cordarone is not appropriate for everyone. Information on your medical history and current medications should be reviewed with your healthcare provider to help avoid potentially serious and even life-threatening complications. Some of the most commonly reported side effects of this medicine include fatigue, nausea, and vomiting.
