Take Notice When Patients Are on Amiodarone
You'll see med-safety experts pushing for more careful review of amiodarone Rxs...due to its plethora of interactions and side effects.
Renew your efforts to ensure safe use of amiodarone.
Watch dosing. Ensure that atrial fib patients who start amiodarone at 400 to 800 mg/day drop down to 100 to 200 mg/day after about a month. This is usually enough to control symptoms...and minimize side effects.
