Is Pacerone the Same Thing as Amiodarone?

If you have a potentially dangerous irregular heart rhythm called ventricular arrhythmia, a healthcare provider may prescribe Pacerone® (amiodarone hydrochloride). Amiodarone is not quite the same thing as Pacerone. It is the active ingredient in it. Generic versions of Pacerone are also available. These products are sold under the name Amiodarone Tablets.
 
Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined that the generic amiodarone products are as good as brand-name Pacerone, the generics can contain different inactive ingredients than the brand-name drug. This might include dyes or fillers, which can cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
