Pacerone and Bradycardia

Pacerone® (amiodarone hydrochloride) is a medicine prescribed to treat certain irregular heartbeats called ventricular arrhythmias. Although it can be a very effective medication for many people, it is not appropriate for everyone. For example, people who have a very slow heart rate (bradycardia) should not take Pacerone.
 
Just like other antiarrhythmia medicines, Pacerone can make existing heart rhythm problems worse, or can even 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 treatment. Also, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you might have.
