How To Use
  • Amiodarone Hcl is given by injection into a vein (IV) as directed by your doctor.
  • Follow all instructions for proper mixing and dilution with the correct IV fluids.
  • If you have questions regarding the use of Amiodarone Hcl, consult your pharmacist.
  • Before using, check this product visually for particles or discoloration.
  • If either is present, do not use the liquid.
  • Do not exceed the recommended rate of infusion.
  • Infusing amiodarone too fast may result in serious side effects such as severe lowering of the blood pressure.
  • Your dosage and infusion rate may be adjusted depending upon your medical condition and response to therapy.
  • A chemical (DEHP) found in plastic IV tubing may harm young children (male reproductive system effects).
  • Amiodarone can cause this chemical to leach out of the tubing.
  • Therefore, caution is advised when using Amiodarone Hcl in children.
  • Special administration guidelines should be followed (e.g., multiple bolus dosing) to minimize exposure to DEHP.
  • Consult the pharmacist for more information.

Side Effects
  • Also see the Warning section.
  • Diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, or dizziness may occur.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly.
  • Amiodarone Hcl, when used in combination with simvastatin, may infrequently cause muscle damage (which can rarely lead to a very serious condition called rhabdomyolysis).
  • Tell your doctor immediately if you develop: muscle pain/tenderness/weakness (especially with fever or unusual tiredness).
  • Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: severe dizziness, slowed heartbeat, uncontrolled shaking/tremor, unexplained weight gain, swelling of the hands or feet, irregular pulse, vision changes (e.g., seeing halos, blurred vision, loss of vision - See Warnings), easy bruising/bleeding, persistent sore throat.
  • Amiodarone Hcl may cause skin reactions similar to a serious sunburn.
  • Infrequently with long-term amiodarone treatment, you may develop blue-gray discoloring of the skin, particularly of the face and hands.
  • This effect is not harmful and usually reverses, sometimes incompletely, after Amiodarone Hcl is stopped.
  • Avoiding prolonged sun exposure may help to prevent this effect.
  • See also Precautions.
  • In the unlikely event you have an allergic reaction to Amiodarone Hcl, seek immediate medical attention.
  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction include: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Amiodarone Hcl should not be used if you have certain medical conditions.
  • Before using Amiodarone Hcl, consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have: cardiogenic shock, certain types of irregular heartbeats or heart rhythms (e.g., severe sinus node dysfunction resulting in marked sinus bradycardia, second or third degree atrioventricular block, bradycardia with associated syncope except when a pacemaker is used).
  • Before using Amiodarone Hcl, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history, especially of: liver disease, heart problems (e.g., congestive heart failure, low blood pressure), lung diseases, thyroid problems, upcoming major surgery, electrolyte problems such as low potassium or low magnesium, any allergies.
  • Amiodarone Hcl may make you dizzy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Amiodarone Hcl may make you more sensitive to the sun.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure.
  • Use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.
  • Caution is advised when using Amiodarone Hcl in the elderly because they may be more sensitive to the effects of Amiodarone Hcl, especially slowing of the heartbeat.
  • A preservative (benzyl alcohol) which may be found in this product or in the liquid used to mix this product (diluent) can infrequently cause serious problems (sometimes death) if given by injection to an infant during the first months of life (neonatal period).
  • The risk is greater with lower birth weight infants and is greater with increased amounts of benzyl alcohol.
  • Symptoms include sudden gasping, low blood pressure, or a very slow heartbeat.
  • Report these symptoms to the doctor immediately should they occur.
  • If possible, a preservative-free product should be used when treating neonates.
  • Amiodarone Hcl is not recommended for use during pregnancy due to the potential for fetal harm.
  • Consult your doctor for more details.
  • Amiodarone passes into breast milk.
  • Breast-feeding is not recommended while using Amiodarone Hcl.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, contact the doctor immediately.
  • Do not increase the rate of infusion above the recommended rate to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Amiodarone Hcl should not be used with the following medications because very serious interactions may occur: agalsidase beta, dofetilide, certain HIV protease inhibitors (nelfinavir, ritonavir), quinupristin/dalfopristin.
  • If you are currently using any of these medications, tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting amiodarone.
  • Other drugs besides amiodarone which may affect the heart rhythm (QTc prolongation in the EKG) include flecainide, disopyramide, pimozide, quinidine, sotalol, procainamide, and sparfloxacin among others.
  • QTc prolongation can infrequently result in serious, rarely fatal, irregular heartbeats.
  • Consult your doctor or pharmacist for details.
  • Ask for instructions about whether you need to stop any other QTc-prolonging drugs you may be using in order to minimize the risk of this effect.
  • Before using Amiodarone Hcl, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription products you may use, especially of: blood thinners (e.g., warfarin), cimetidine, cyclosporine, digoxin, fentanyl, local and general anesthesia, heart medications (e.g., diltiazem, verapamil, beta-blockers such as propranolol), other HIV protease inhibitors (e.g., amprenavir, indinavir), methotrexate, phenytoin, rifampin, statins (e.g., lovastatin, simvastatin), St.
