How To Use
  • Take Pacerone by mouth.
  • It is best taken with food.
  • However, it is more important to take amiodarone consistently, with regard to meals.
  • Ask your pharmacist for additional information.
  • Pacerone works best when there is a constant level of Pacerone in your body.
  • To do this, take each dose exactly as prescribed at evenly spaced intervals throughout the day and night.
  • Try to take each dose at the same time each day.
  • Do not stop taking Pacerone or change the dose without first consulting your doctor.
  • Some conditions may become worse when Pacerone is suddenly stopped or when more drug is taken than prescribed.

Side Effects
  • Also see the Warning section.
  • Constipation, loss of appetite, bitter taste in mouth, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, trouble sleeping, headache, flushing of the face, or decreased sexual interest may occur as your body adjusts to the medication.
  • If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor promptly.
  • Pacerone, 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: coldness, sweating, unexplained weight change, enlarged thyroid gland, nervousness, uncontrolled shaking/tremor, sluggishness, loss of coordination, tingling or numbness of the hands or feet, 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.
  • Pacerone 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 Pacerone 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 Pacerone, 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.

  • Pacerone should not be used if you have certain medical conditions.
  • Before using Pacerone, consult your doctor or pharmacist if you have: 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 Pacerone, 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.
  • Pacerone may make you dizzy; use caution engaging in activities requiring alertness such as driving or using machinery.
  • Limit alcoholic beverages.
  • Pacerone may make you more sensitive to the sun.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure, tanning booths or sunlamps.
  • Use a sunscreen and wear protective clothing when outdoors.
  • Pacerone 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 Pacerone.

Missed Dose
  • If you miss a dose, use it as soon as you remember.
  • If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your usual dosing schedule.
  • Do not double the dose to catch up.

Drug Interactions
  • Pacerone 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 Pacerone, 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.
